Brilliant private show
This morning passengers on board Bjössi Sör had a great luck as two humpbacks were encountered feeding together with several white beaked dolphins and a minke whale nearby.
After a while the two humpbacks split up and one of them seemed to take interest in the boat. Captain Heimir then killed the engine and for about 20 minutes the curious humpback swam around the boat relaxed and easy, sometimes putting the head out of the water.
When other boats approached, the humpback decided it was time to go as this was intended as a private show, so he gloriously waived goodbye and plunged into the depths of Skjálfandi bay leaving everyone on board happy with a great experience.

Relaxing next to the boat with “arms” spread out but the flippers of the humpback whales can get as long as 6 meters or one third of their length.
