A breaching Humpback whale
After a hard morning where the whales did not show up we headed again in to the bay with new hope. We had gotten some news from other boats that they had spotted something. There fore we set the course towards them and after a bit of search we spotted a Humpback whale. We got a grate look at that individual and enjoyed it. As more boats came we decided to head further as we had spotted an other spout. Once again we had to search a bit. But suddenly a Humpback whale breached not far from us. And he continued the show and anyone on the boat got a grate look at it.
As the time run out we had to set the course again towards Húsavík, but we did that with a smile on our faces after a grate show.
The smile did not get smaller as we enjoyed the hot chocolate and the cinnamon buns on the way back.
