A very hungry humpback whale….
The foggy conditions from yesterday had cleared up this morning and the conditions were almost perfect for whale watching: Good visibility and the sea was very flat as well.
We left the harbour at 10:00 onboard “Náttfari” and set the course in the direction of puffin island Lundey. Just south-west of Lundey all of a sudden a minke whale surface close to our boat and we took some very nice looks at it, before it travelled away and we went further out in the search for other species.
A few minutes later, we spotted the blow and the black back from a humpback whale in the distance and as we got closer, we saw that this humpback whale was enjoying a nice breakfast (probably some small fish) among hundreds of seabirds!
It was rolling on its side, feeding right under the surface, again and again!
A very spectacular sight that we also got to see during our later trips today (as well as some minke whales between Húsavík and Lundey).
