The Husavik Dolphins

Today was another fantastic day in Husavik, weatherwise. And another succesfull whale-watching trip for us! After a good hour on our whale-watching vessel Nattfari, we observed for several minutes a group of about 10 dolphins. It was our very first dolphin sighting of the year! The weather forecast seems quite good for tomorow again. So, be…

Exciting start!

Today was our second scheduled tour out in the bay. And, for our greatest pleasure, we had the surprise of spotting once more a blue whale, the largest animal to have lived on our planet! The blue whales are frequent visitors of our waters, but not in mid-march. Adding to it a beautiful sunny weather,…

Fun in the fog

Náttfari is only doing two tours a day now (but Bjössi three). Today we were able to go out after two days of storm and relevant cancellations. On both tours we had some lovely sightings. On the morning tour we had some 4-6 Minke Whales and all of them were relaxed and could be viewed,…

Already the sailing itself was a pleasure and we enjoyed the trip out in the bay. But also the animals were incredible. We spotted several harbor…

Whales in pouring rain

We went on two tours on Garðar today but the third one was cancelled due to worsening sea conditions. Both were excellent, even if challenging due to somewhat rough sea and bad visibility. There were at least 4-6 Humpback Whales in the bay and once the fog allowed us some view, we could see blows…

A wonderful whale day

Three tours today and of those, the morning and the evening tour were the best by far. In the morning we had at least four Humpback Whales, including one duo which we got to see amazingly well, a great thing given the foggy surroundings. In the afternoon there were at least two Humpbacks but in…
