Winds had calmed down compared to yesterday and we were accompanied by sun, clouds and a bit of wind on our afternoon tour. We sailed from Akureyri and ended our tour in Dalvik. Since the past tours were full of surprises, we were eager to go out and search the whole 60 kilometers of the fjord. Today a pod of white-beaked dolphins showed their lovely fins just outside of Hrisey. We counted between 7-10 individuals. They were quite busy, likely herding fish and we were kept on our toes to follow all their movements. Very fun and handy because it got chilly outside. Afterwards we went further North, however no other cetaceans were spotted. Still, a fun afternoon out in the fjord!
