A spout-tacular day!
Today we were really lucky because the crew on Hildur, one of our schooners who was on its way towards Flatey, to continue from there to Grímsey, spotted a mighty spout very far away. We on Bjössi Sör were heading towards a humpback whale when we heard about this huge spout. We however continued to the humpback whale and got a very good look at it, it lifted its fluke for us, came up very close to us and even splashed a little with its flipper to us. After this great show we headed towards Hildur and they told us that this mighty spout belonged to a blue whale! We were of course very excited and we were right to be; the blue whale was in a very good mood and gave us a fantastic show. We continued to watch blue whales througuout the day, and in one of the tours we even had two of them! The weather today has been good, but the bay a little bumpy.
