Pilot whales & Northern bottlenosed whales
Today we got the great news from captain Hrólfur that a Northern bottlenosed whales, had been seen together with 6 pilot whales and 3 minke whales.
The minkes are an everyday sight so to speak but both the pilot whales and the bottlenosed whales are very rare.
When summed up the sightings this summer make it the greatest summer ever with a total of 10 species spotted since end of April:
