The first humpback whale!!!
It was a fantastic morning when I was on my way to the harbour today to guide my first whale watching tour this year. It is always nice to come back to Húsavík, but especially nice if you are greeted with sunshine and a fantastic view at the snow-covered mountains.
We left the harbour at 10:00 and after having searched for more than 2 hours, we got a call from our sailing schooner “Haukur” (they were on their first trip of the season today) that they had found a humpback whale close to their boat.
We immediately set the course towards them and there it was: The first humpback whale for the 2014 season!
It was a bit difficult in the beginning (the whale was diving quite long), but we were patient and after a little while we were rewarded with some really nice looks at the humpback whale!
Everybody on board was very happy about this “Happy End” to the tour and even though we came back a bit late, lots of smiling faces left the boat as we came back to Húsavík harbour.
