Harbour porpoises frenzy
The scheduled tours keep on benefiting from the surprisingly enjoyable weather that bathes the Northern shores of Iceland these days.
Our newly tanned crew was able to spot from up-close a large pod of harbour porpoises. These tooth whales are the smallest whales observed in the bay. And especially, they are hardly seen so close to ships for such a long time.
But, our captain, Már, still decided to consider our trip as unsuccessful. And our passengers were consequently granted an open ticket to come back and give it another chance. Some of them will be back tomorrow, hoping for as good a sun and larger whales spotting.
The passengers and the crew were scrutinizing a very flat sea…
….and enjoying the stunning landscape of the west side of the bay…
…when the pod of harbour porpoises appeared close to us. They were obviously busy feeding. ….
… They eventually fled away from us….
And our captain, Már, decided ,on our way back to Husavik, to give open tickets to all of our guests.
