Vibrant summer start
One can for sure say that the first days of Whale Watching in Skjálfandi Bay are promising for the season to come for the reason that all of North Sailing´s tours so far have been very successful.
Today we made two tours where 3 Humpbacks, 2 Minke whales and 20-30 White Beaked Dolphins were spotted. There are as well lots of guillemots which we are especially excited over since last summer we saw unusually few of them. Guillemots give a good sign of quantity of krill and plankton in the bay on which the whales feed on. Puffins, Arctic Turns, Kittiwakes, and Fulmars were feeding and it seems that both the whales and the birds have enough to eat and we hope that will continue throughout the summer!
Let the pictures speak for themselves:)

Those two Humpbacks plus one more were cruising around the boat and enjoying life!
At the end of the trip, it´s always nice to warm up with some hot chocolate:)
