Cold and windy morning in the Fjord. We had amazing light as the sun was shining through thick layer of clouds and fog but it was not easy to spot wildlife today. It took us about 1 hour to find a Humpback Whale, a little behind Hjalteyri and that was Jackson - a whale we’ve been seeing for a few days now in the area, but also a whale that is our regular visitor since 2016. We stopped two times on the way as we spotted at least one more Humpback whale around the buoy before Hjalteyri but as the wind was very strong and waves were picking up it was impossible to follow this one. We stayed with Jackson for most of the tour and we had two very nice encounters as the animal was calmly floating on the waves and two times he went for a dive just on the side of our boat. Challenging tour, but in the end we’ve seen two Humpback whales so it was definitely worth going out there!
