Today was a beautiful day with blue skies and sunshine so no need for overalls! During the first tour we encountered a group of white beaked dolphins. They had a lot of young calves with them and luckily for us they stayed quite close to the boat while chasing fish. So we managed to get several good looks when the whole group surfaced together.
In the afternoon we did not manage to find these dolphins or other cetaceans in the fjord. Therefore we handed out complimentary tickets to the passengers so they can try again for free in the next 2 years. Hopefully they will be able to see some of the amazing wildlife swimming around Iceland next time.

Luckily we were successful again in the evening, far north we found a humpback whale surrounded by white beaked dolphins. Whale was very far therefore we had to end the day in Dalvik and once again combine sailing with bus ride.

Departures: Classic 9, 13, 17 and 20:30 Express 10 and 21
