We had to be very patient today as we sailed out into the fjord as the animals were far out into the fjord but quite close to the island of Hrísey. It was a beautiful sunny day, not too cold and with only a little wind. On the morning tour the humpback whale named Fjall was spotted and we were able to watch this amazing animal surface numerous times before having to start back to harbour. On the afternoon tour the wind had picked up slightly but it was still lovely and sunny. After journeying out far into the fjord a humpback surfaced only 100 meters in front of us and surfaced numerous times in all different directions. We were also lucky enough to see it go for multiple deep dives raising its wonderful black and white patterned fluke right out of the waters. A further two humpback whales were also spotted in the distance and their beautiful big blows.
