We had one awesome tour today from Hólmavík with three species. We started by watching some pilot whales and also white-beaked dolphins amongst them. However, once we went out to the humpbacks who were deep feeding, we almost didn’t have to move the boat for over half an hour as whale after whale surfaced next to us. We drifted with the engines off, just watching many humpback whales coming up and then going down again, with one at the surface almost constantly. Of course we are the only boat there with them, with no other boats around to disturb the whales or us. Judith (Tour guide)
