Meeting “old friends”
This morning the sea was unexpected rough, due to strong wind from the north. Nevertheless we spotted a humpback whale – one of our “old friends” that stay in Skjálfandi Bay since several days and that has been observed also earlier this season. Furthermore we encountered a group of white beaked dolphins. They approached our boat and we were lucky to see them bow riding!
In the afternoon a second humpback whale joined the one we spotted in the morning already. And also this one is very well known. Both were very calm and surfaced almost simultaneously. We got some very close looks at them and since the weather changed the sea was quite flat again and we observed the amazing whales floating right under the surface of the sea, which gave us an impression of their impressive size. They’re such wonderful animals!
