A beautiful late-summer feast
This past weekend out on Skjálfandi bay was absolutely amazing!
In our 10:00 clock tour on Saturday, me, captain Hrólfur and deckhand Kormákur went out with fully loaded Bjössi Sör and were amazed by the lively Skjálfandi! After taking a look at two humpbacks and not less than five minke whales we headed back to the harbour in a fantastic scenery! With the sea completely smooth and calm wind, the crew and the passengers surely appreciated the sun shining and the quite unexpected ‘late summer´s’ 18°C.

A humpback whale´s flippers can be around 4-6 meters long!
In our Sunday tour, along with the humpbacks and minkes, a school of around 50 white beaked dolphins was added to our logbook. Mothers and calves swimming along side our boat, jumping and playing all around us.
A happy-looking dolphin!
As said, an absolutely amazing weekend! And the season is far from over!
