Wow! What a day! Whales Ahoy! And plenty of them. We had to go a very long way to see the whales today but it was well worth it! Not only did we get to see our beloved humpbacks but minke whales and white-beaked dolphins were also spotted on the tours. The humpbacks delighted us with some awesome surfacing´s near and far as there were at least 15 of them!! Just incredible to see so many in one area! On our last tour three whales even popped up right in front of the boat as we were leaving almost giving our Captain Arnar a heart attack. It seemed like the whales didn´t want us to go as every time we went to leave more whales would pop up very close, even less than one meter at one point! Another truly magical day on the fjord!
