A handful of humpbacks
In the beginning of the tour, we spotted a minke whale just about 15 minutes from Húsavík harbour. Unfortunately, the minke whale didn’t show much of itself so we decided to sail a bit further out. After about one hour of searching, we finally saw the blow from a humpback whale and after taking a close look at this whale, we spotted even more blows in the distance!
As we got closer, we realized that there were four humpback whales in the area (three of them swimming side by side together), what a sight!
We were a bit late as we arrived back in Húsavík harbour, but really happy about five humpback whales and one minke whale.
