Whales ahoy! Another amazing day with some wonderful whales. The sun was shining, the fjord was flat and there was very little wind, which made perfect sailing conditions. On our morning tour we encountered our favorite whale of the week Iskona, meaning Ice woman in Icelandic. This whale delighted us with some lovely surfaces and even came up at one point only a few meters from the boat giving half of the passengers heart attacks. On our afternoon tour, again we found Iskona but also found 3 other humpback whales including another of our favorites Aretha Frankfin. These whales surfaced many times all round the boat and raising their majestic flukes or tails as they went for deeper dives. Simply wonderful.
