In dawn we sailed out the fjord a bit earlier then usual at 8:30 to fit in a tour before our Superbrake group had to fly back home. It was a cold day but we had a almost no wind on our way out the fjord and we got a smooth boat ride. Our warm free overall on board, hot drinks and heated saloon kept us all warm and comfortable. As we sailed out the fjord we got to enjoy looking at the daylight coming up and seeing Eyjafjörður brightening up. As we went past Hjalteyri we saw spout coming up from the water and there we encountered two humpback whales coming up on all side of the boat quite close each time and with them we had such a great time. However we did not get to see the back of the fluke so I could not see which individual's it was this time. Again great day with our humpbacks in Eyjafjörður as usual .
