A fantastic Humpback whale show
To day as we left the harbor for the 13:30 trip we were hopeful of finding some whales. The sun was shining and almost no waves.
We did not have to sail for a long time until we managed to fulfill our wish. Half an hour after departure we had spotted the first spout and set the course there. There we had found a Humpback whale. This individual was diving a lot and for long time so we decided to see if we would find some other whale. Again we did not have to sail for long until we found the next one. There we had found the next Humpback whale. Actually tow of them. Those tow where not diving for long and they did not travel to far each time. There fore it was easy to follow them around and get a grate look at them.
At the time we had to set the course towards Húsavík again, we had gotten an fantastic show, even with close up encounters.
On the way back we enjoyed hot chocolate as well as the sun.
