Another amazing day to be out there in the Fjord! Cold morning in Akureyri greeted us with quite challenging conditions again - thick fog starting right beyond Svalbarðseyri surrounded us for over an hour limiting the view badly. However it didn’t stop us from having wonderful experience with whales - we found today 3 Humpback Whales travelling together synchronized. One of them was our regular visitor called Jackson and he was always the first one to go for a dive and two other were following. Stunning encounter when at second surfacing the whales showed up just 2-3 meters away from us! At this point the weather was getting better and on our way back we even enjoyed some sun.
