In Snæfellsnes today we saw several sperm whales, one nice close look. We also got a brief look at a Minke whale. In the afternoon sperm whales again and an exciting encounter. Two sperm whales met up. One brought its pectoral fin out and then a bit of nose came out of the water, then they swam fast away and dived. Fascinating behaviour. Once again, we also got a quick look at a Minke.
In Hólmavík on our afternoon tour in very calm seas it took us a while to find a whale, but we ended up with two humpbacks feeding around us. The whales were blowing bubbles under the water before coming up feeding, not a behaviour we see very often here in Steingrímsfjörður. There was also another humpback just outside the harbour when we went home! Judith (Tour guide)
