Great whale watching in the end of the season!
The past days have been really good; good weather and good whales. On Saturday three humback whales were seen along with two minkes and yesterday our guide, Christian, describes the trip so:
The weather was really great when I went out with captain Hrólfur onboard “Bjössi Sör” this morning. When leaving the harbour, we were setting the course directly north-west, towards the area where we had seen the humpback whale yesterday. Of course we had hope that he is still around, but obviously the whale had left the area.
But instead of that, after sailing for about one hour, we found two humpback whales a bit further west, quite close to the mountains.
They were both definitely different individuals from the one that we saw yesterday, which had an almost completely black fluke.
But one of the two whales that we were watching today was already here during the end of September, when he (or she?) stayed in the bay for around a week.
We managed to watch these two humpback whales for quite a while, before we had to turn back to the harbour, with a lot of very happy passengers on board.
