An incredible whale watching day!
Today was probably one of the best whale watching days we have had this season so far.
We left the harbour in beautiful weather conditions (calm sea, sunny weather and about 15°C) and it didn’t take long until we found some nice white-beaked dolphins. We some them jumping in the distance and as we got closer we realized, that there were actually quite many dolphins all around us. In the same area there were also two humpback whales present and while watching one of the humpbacks, we suddenly saw a huge blow further out: A blue whale! We sailed towards the blue whale blow and we soon figured out that there was more than one blue whale in the area.
This area in the north-western part of the bay was full of large whales and on almost all our tours today, there were blue whales and humpback whales everywhere! We counted at least four blue whales in the bay today as well as a large number of humpback whales and white-beaked dolphins on this wonderful icelandic summer day…..it couldn’t have been any better!
