Still fantastic whale watching conditions
We still have very good whale watching condtitions here in Skjálfandi Bay and today was no exception: The sea was calm, the sun was shining and we have been very successful with the whales.
We left the harbour at 10:00 onboard “Garðar” and once more the well-known whale expert and friend of North Sailing, Mark Carwardine, joined us.
The course was set towards the mountains on the western side of the bay and as we got closer, we spotted the blow from a humpback whale. We soon realized that there were also minke whales in the area, so before taking a good look at the humpback whale, we decided to spend some time with a minke whale.
We got some nice encounters with both the minke and the humpback whale (which was quite a big individual) and decided to sail a bit further north to try to find more whales.
It didn’t take long until we found another humpback whale and two more minke whales.
The humpback and minke whales played also the main role during the afternoon tour (13:30). We were able to watch three different humpback whales and several minke whales (probably about 5, maybe even more individuals).
So all in all very good whale watching……fingers crossed that it will stay like this!
