I´m Blue Da Ba Dee
Today was at first quite complicated out at sea. Despite a great visibility over the whole bay and a fantastic weather, we were enable to find a whale during our morning tour.
And the second tour started out to be pretty much the same. But after two hours and a half, on our way back to Husavik, Marianne Rasmussen, director of the Husavik Research center for the University of Iceland, stopped Nils during his speech: „Blow at 11.OO!!!“
A blue whale was indeed there and cheered the end of the day for all of our guests! The scientists of the Research Center often come on our boats to study the whales and help us with our daily tasks. Today, they made us come back late to Húsavík. But who would blame them?
Despite our best efforts, neither our trainee Helena, nor the crew had managed to spot a whale.
But then Marianne Rasmussen and her team of researchers came to our rescue.
“But where is the whale?” our guests seem to wonder.
There it is, showing its powerful blow…
…and most of its body as it came close to us. It is obviously a different individual from the one, that we saw the previous day, considering how in a much better shape it is.
It even took some beatiful pauses, under the lazy afternoon sun of this brilliant April day.
