Today was rainy and cloudy, but the cold weather we are getting in the fjord last days it´s been really good in term of food availability. The fjord is literally exploding with life and cetaceans are not an exception. Apart from our famous pod of 20-30 pilot whales within the harbour, which has been around us for 2 days, we have rediscovered the pod of 5-6 northern bottlenose whales just outside of Akureyri. But that wasn´t all, humpback whales are making their comeback inside the fjord and we have spotted at least 2 of them heading south, and one of them is a well-known individual: “Right Hook”, a super-star during winter time. Despite the cold and the rain, it´s an excellent time to enjoy these beauties.
