What did we see today: Humpback Whale, Minke Whales, White Beaked Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises, Puffins & and a variety of sea birds

As we set out into Faxafloi this morning, the water was choppy but we travelled directly out to the edge of the lava fields.  We were lucky as we saw a humpback surface and raise its flukes before diving for more food.  We also caught glimpses of harbour porpoises on our way out and on our way back.

This afternoon, we caught glimpses of surfacing minkes amongst the sea birds wheeling above. The sea had settled into shiny rollers that reflected the sky beautifully.  Suddenly we smelt Minke breathe- not something you forget easily! Phew!

 

Surfacing Minke after sharing its stinky breath!
