Good going in Ólafsfjörður
While there haven’t been many big whales in Skjálfandaflói lately reports have been pouring in about great sightings in the next fjord over, Eyjafjörður, in which we recently started offering whale watching trips. These last few days humpback whales have been spotted on the tours much to the delight of our passengers. Pictures say more than a thousand words and here are a few pictures Heimir took on a trip some days ago.
Humpback whale close to Knörrinn.
Two humpbacks swimming together, their enormous flippers clearly visible.
The iconic humpback fluke.
The two humpbacks and big flocks of feeding birds.
It’s almost as if the humpback is deep diving to escape the birds.
Knörrinn in familiar surroundings. It was built in Akureyri and sailed from that port for many years.
