Whale feast at the end of August
After a few days of windy weather North Sailing boats could finally sail out again yesterday and the bay seems to be full of life, much more so than normally at this time of the year. Today our trips spotted a humpback, a minke whale, dolphins and even saw the glimpse of harbour porpoises… a true whale feast at the end of August.
The photos below where taken by one of our crew member, Þórunn Harðardóttir, who takes on various roles e.g. as captain, engineer and guide.
Humpback at 12 o´clock!
The autumn is now in the air here in the north as can be seen form the snow covered mountaintops on the photo above.

The humpbacks have been calm and docile and the passengers had plenty of opportunities to enjoy their presence and photograph them.
