Whale say HI!!!

We had an amazing encounter today with a humpback whale. Just a little bit of context: perfect sea conditions, smooth boat ride, and out of nowhere we started seeing a humpback whale breaching in the distance. It breached three times as we were approaching, and when we came closer, the encounter became a show of pectoral and fluke slapping that is going to be wired in the retinas of the people who witnessed it. It was such a nice encounter, with such a nice condtions and a wonderful variety of humpback behaviour. We were also having several minke whales lunge feeding in the area, sometimes throwing their bodies out of the water from the sheer speed the animals were attacking food. Really amazing day, one of many unique sightings Faxafloi is offering us this year.
