Another day, another exciting adventure on our fiord! We sailed out on a fairly clear, windless afternoon. The sun was shining high in the sky, the path out the harbour was clear and (for the first time in a while) unfrozen, and we spotted the Humpback whale of the tour quite close to the harbour. The animal was swimming permanently towards south, but after a few minutes of whale watching the weather switched radically. A strong wind followed us all the way until the very end of the tour. However, we got to see one of those unique moments that everybody wants to see and almost nobody manages to when going whale watching: a BREACH! Unexpectedly, the animal jumped twice a hundred meters away from us. Not long after that we had to cancel the final part of the tour due to the strong wing, but we are sure that at everybody brought home one of the highlights of their travel to Iceland!
