Grey seas and grey skies did not keep us from having an awesome time on the water today! We searched the waters of Breiðafjörður towards the West, and first encountered a humpback whale lunge-feeding close to the water surface. After having a good look at the humpback, we started our search for the orcas, and spotted a single male along the way, but this male disappeared really fast. We then soon came across a whole pod of orcas that were feeding and travelling South. The little baby in the group still had coloration, but was quite fat for its age! We observed the orcas with the beautiful Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the background, the landscape half submerged in the fog at times. It was wonderful again! The weather for this week does not look too good, and tomorrow we already have to cancel the tour due to unfavorable sea conditions. Let’s hope we get out there soon again!
