Great weather, very smooth seas. The morning tours had been quite lucky already to observe Minke and Humpback whales feeding among flocks of seabirds diving after the fish.

Then an unusual sighting was mentioned of Kevlavik! It was quite a risky bet to go that far to look for them. But our captains were confident in the 600 horses power of the speed boat twin engines. We could sail fast on that smooth water to reach the area and the tense search began. Both tours have been successful and everybody onboard enjoyed a very rare (for Faxafloi Bay) and amazing encounter: Orcas! A young individual was very playful and kept swimming around the other members of the pod of 6.
