A very curious minke whale…
Today has been a wonderful day for whale watching here in Skjálfandi Bay.
On all our trips we managed to find both humpback and minke whales in flat sea conditions.
During the tour at 13:30 we had a simply amazing encounter with a very friendly and curious minke whale who decided to check out our boat and at one point the whale even rolled around, showing us its white belly!!!
Also the humpback whale that we saw on all three tours was really nice to watch as we got to see it really close-up several times and it also often lifted its fluke for us when it went down for the deep dive.
There were also lots of puffins and other seabirds around and of course the mountains on the western side of the bay look really stunning in this beautiful winter weather.
