Blue whale party in Húsavík
Many magnificent blue whales have graced our tours this spring, leaving our passengers in awe! We’ve had the sheer joy of spotting these majestic creatures not just on a few occasions but an incredible 26 tours already this season, and we’re only in mid-May!
Just imagine this: a glorious sunny day, the glistening waters of Skjálfandi Bay, and suddenly, a magnificent blue whale breaks the surface, captivating all who have the privilege of being there.
Happy whale watching passengers
The joy and excitement experienced by our passengers have been overwhelmingly positive. We have received numerous reviews praising our team’s efforts and expressing gratitude for the exceptional encounters with blue whales, leaving them with memories that will last a lifetime!
“We were lucky and saw the largest mammal on earth, a blue whale showing its fluke. Sooooo impressive and something you will never forget! Thanks to North Sailing for this amazing experience!”
On our whale watching adventures, we always aim to give our customers the best tour we can, but the most important thing is to respect the animals.
Skjálfandi Bay: A rare haven for Blue whales!
Nested in the heart of Skjálfandi Bay lies Húsavík, one of the few places on Earth where you can see the biggest animal on Earth regularly! Spotting blue whales in Húsavík isn’t that abnormal, as this natural haven provides an ideal feeding ground for these incredible creatures.
We’re always delighted to welcome the largest animal on Earth in Húsavík, 30 meters of sheer beauty!
Incredible Blue whale fluke!
This season has also been special in another aspect – blue whales have been very frequently lifting their gigantic flukes before diving! It’s believed that only one out of five blue whales will do so on average!
Tag along when in North Iceland
