A rather challenging tour, we went out but no further than beyond Hjalteyri area. Strong wind and blizzard, thick fog and enormous waves even so deep in the Fjord made it impossible to go further out. We spotted a Humpback whale around Svalbarðseyri but just gasping for air and going for a dive immediately. We’ve seen him twice, still quite far away from us and we decided leave him to look for other animals that would be easier to follow. This time we didn’t succeed. We made a circle and tried to look for that individual again but we haven’t found him again. We came back to the harbor and offered complimentary tickets for all passengers. Hopefully we’ll have better conditions tomorrow, the forecast looks much better!
