Norwegian Boaters Film Close Encounter With 6 Humpback Whales


Saturday 8th November 2014, Svein Aasjord and Trond Ivarsøy were out in their small boat on Kaldfjorden (‘the cold fjord’) in Kvaløya (‘whale island’), Norway, when they saw several whales in the distance, feeding on the herring that the fjords are packed with at this time of year. They shut down the engine, as not to disturb the whales, and the whale in return came closer.

A lot closer.
