Icelandair staff from London on summer´s first trip.
Yesterday, North Sailing had the pleasure of hosting a group of employees from the Icelandair office in London. They were here to study North Sailing´s operation and see what Húsavík has to offer. Although the official whale watching season hasn´t started yet, nobody could resist sailing out to the beautiful bay as conditions were great, flat sea and 14°C. North Sailing´s boat, Bjössi Sör, that had actually just arrived from Akureyri where it undertook som major improvement was chosen for the event. The group enjoyed a short sailing around Lundey, where puffins have already arrived, and a short detour out to the bay where White beaked dolphins greeted the first whale watchers of this season and played around the boat for a while.
After this enjoyable sailing everyone had a delicious lunch at Gamli Baukur Restaurant and visited the Whale Museum. Thereafter everyone returned with a first hand experience of Húsavík´s flourishing tourism opertunities.
It´s now only a few days until the season will take off with daily trips throughout May, and North Sailing folks are looking forward to their eleventh season on the Bay.
Happy group aboard Bjössi Sör
