Day of adventures in or beloved fiord! We had sun, snow, sun again…! And although it was calm and there was no wind in the fiord, we faced a bit of swell when we arrived to the area of Hrísey. The first marine mammal that we saw today was, for a change, a Harbour Seal that was lying over an ice plate that was formed over the sea surface. After that, and almost two hours after the beginning of the tour, we came across three Humpback whales that were swimming towards the South. We quickly lost the couple that was traveling together, but we stayed with the one that was traveling alone: an old well-known whale of us that we call Jackson. After some difficult days, it feels good to enjoy some time with our Eyjafjordur whales!
