North Sailing - Húsavík, Iceland

Wildlife of Skjálfandi Bay

Blue Whale diving near Husavik

Sailing in Skjálfandi Bay gives an opportunity to experience the diverse wildlife of the area. From the settlement in Iceland the Bay has provided the people of the area with plenty of fish on the table.


But the fish not only attracts the human but is also extremely appealing to marine mammals and seabirds. Occasionally one can witness how whales, birds and fish compete at the sea surface for their share of the cake.


On North Sailing's tours the whales of course draw the most attention but the colourful birdlife can sometimes surprise the visitors of the Bay.
