5 Blue Whales in Húsavík: See the Biggest Animal on Earth!

It’s always spectacular when a Blue whale enters the bay. It is, after all, the largest animal on Earth. However, earlier this week was simply unreal. Not one, and not two but a staggering number of at least five Blue whales were spotted in Húsavík!
We’re always delighted to welcome to largest animal on Earth to our Bay. Spotting a Blue whale is amazing, but five Blue whales in the same tour is extraordinary. Words cannot describe the feeling when five of the world’s largest animals come up for air, gracing us with their presence. 25 meters of sheer beauty. It’s not something you see every day, and definitely one to remember!
