Summer weekend in Húsavík
We have had amazing whale watching conditions here in Húsavík during the weekend: The sea as flat as a mirror, the sun shining (with temperatures around 20°C) and four species of whales spotted here in the bay…..it couldn’t have been any better!
There are still lots of humpback whales feeding in many places in the bay and some of them also show some very interesting behaviour. We had one very curious humpback whales checking out our boat on Sunday morning (during the 8:50 tour), and also several tours with breaching humpback whales both Saturday and Sunday.
Also the white-beaked dolphins are here in big numbers these days and on many trips we could see them jumping high out of the water and approaching the boats.
On some of our trips during the weekend we have also spotted the minke whales, and it is also much easier to spot the small harbour porpoises in the calm sea conditions we have these days.
All in all, a fantastic weekend for whale watching. The nice weather is supposed to continue for next days, let’s hope the whales will also stay in a good mood!
