The first Blue whale of the season
The first Blue whale of the season was spotted today! Passengers on board Schooner Haukur had a whale of a time when they spotted 5 species of whales on their 3 day tour over the weekend.
One of the ca. 10 humpback whales spotted during the tour, most of them were in
the Grímsey channel.
All together, about 20 dolphins, 5 porpoises, 5 minke whales, 10 humpback whales and the blue whale were spotted during the tour.
The amount of whales and birdlife is usually much more when you take a 3 day adventure tour compared to the average 3 or 4 hour tours in the bay. There are still places available on the next departures of the 3 day tour on 12th and 19th of June. For further information click here.
