Humpbacks in pairs

We are having happy happy days at Faxaflói bay. These are days to be remembered, when the sea is blue and the whales are pretty. Today we had the first double encounter of the season: two whales feeding at the same time, at the same spot. We don't know yet if they were mother with calf or just a random encounter. What we can say is that they were swimming and diving in a perfect coreography, giving us one big show. We saw them from time to time coming out of the surface with mouth open after one big bite of fish. The day was a really nice spring day, with some sporadic rain showers and some moderate swell, but it all contributed to make the tours bumpy and funny.

After the past stormy days feels nice to be able to enjoy such a special sightings, where the ocean is giving us wonderfull and memorable times.
