What a great time to go whale watching here at the moment! We saw again at least 5 humpback whales that had traveled even further South towards Akureyri than yesterday. Most of the time we spent with two of them that were feeding in the area and coming up to the surface every few minutes before disappearing again to continue feeding. In the meantime we saw the blows of other humpback whales in the distance and suddenly even a minke whale showed up a couple of times. They whales just kept feeding, ignoring us and allowing us to slowly get closer to them. Awesome!
