Northern Bottlenose Whales in Húsavík for the First Time in Years!

Northern bottlenose whales spotted in Húsavík for the first time in years. It’s always a pleasant surprise when old friends pay us a visit in the Whale Capital of Iceland!
Northern bottlenose whales prefer deep waters and are therefore uncommon in Skjálfandi bay. However, we were lucky enough to spot them for two days in a row last week! The Whale Capital of Iceland is known for the many whale species found in the bay, which will hopefully continue for years to come!
