Curious and feeding Humpbacks!
It was grey and rainy when we sailed out this morning, but it definitely didn´t have any effect on the whale whatching! We were the first boat to go out today so we couldn’t count on anyone else to find the whales. We started by heading west and it didn’t take long before we found a calm Humpback whale. When we got closer the humpback started to get curious about the boat and the passengers! First it went under the boat and came on the other side just about a meter from the boat. Then it turned around and lifted the head out of the water to take a closer look at the passenger. This went on for about 30 minutes and it looked like as the Humpback had fallen in love with the boat. This was an amazing experience.
After we left the curious Humpback we spotted two more spauts in the distance. When we got closer we saw that we were looking at more humpbacks. Both of the whales were busy feeding just on the surface so we could see their huges mouths wide open and some artic terns flying and feeding with them!
The time was running from us so we started to head back towards Húsavík. Suddenly we found a small group of white-beaked dolphins. They swam with the boat and played around it, this was a great end of this amazing trip.
