Dolphin day in Skjálfandi Bay
We have had three very nice tours in fantastic weather conditions today: The sun was shining almost the whole day, there was not a single cloud to be seen and the sea was as flat as a mirror.
On all three trips we encountered minke whales, harbour porpoises and large numbers of white-beaked dolphins.
During the tours at 13:30 and 17:00, we saw the minke whales very close to the mountains on the western side of the bay and it was especially nice to see so many dolphins back in the bay…..it has been a while since we saw them in such big numbers!
All in all it was a very nice day out at sea with lots of whales and dolphins in beautiful weather.
