Home / whale diaries / 06/09/2018: Humpback heaven

We had a fantastic morning out of Hólmavík with calm seas and lots of whales. We started with pilot whales and a brief look at some white-beaked dolphins, but once we got out to the humpbacks there were around 8 in a small area. There were groups and singles, and we almost always had a whale to watch.
In the afternoon the humpbacks were rather more spread out but we got to see many over the course of the tour. They were diving and travelling and a little harder to follow but the highlight was a big breach not too far from the boat! Judith (Tour guide)
