Sperm whales and Blue whales spotted in Húsavík this weekend! Therefore, the number of whale species seen in Skjálfandi continues to increase! The whale watching in Húsavík is reaching a new peak, underlining why it’s called the Whale Capital of Iceland!
March continues to be excellent in regards to whale watching in Iceland! A few days in, we’d never seen as many whales in the bay this early in the season. As the days passed, more and more whales began to show up. One day we spotted pods of Humpback whales, then we had Orcas, and the next dolphins and Sei whales!
Now, the largest animal to have ever existed on Earth at any point, the massive Blue whale, is in Húsavík! To accompany it and keep it from being lonely, it is escorted by the rare Sperm whale! If you’re in Iceland, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to spot Sperm whales and Blue whales in Húsavík! Additionally, we’ve spotted seven other whale species in the last two weeks, so there are a lot of whales in the bay!
