Fantastic Humpback show!
Yet another successful whale watching tour confirms that this season start is one of the best from the beginning. In total 4 Humpbacks, 6 White Beaked Dolphins and a few Harbour Porpoises were spotted and 2 of the Humpbacks put up a great show for passengers and crew.
When they had been feeding for a while they started breaching, sometimes no further than 10-15 meters away from the boat. After ca 30 jumps the Humpback started flipper slapping and rolling in the surface for about 30 minutes. It appeared that the whale was taking interest in the boat and was simply enjoying the attention from the excited passengers that in return got a fantastic photo-model.
Below are some pictures that Thorunn Hardardottir guide took during the tour.
