Shake it off

The days keep on going colder and colder. But the bay remains a gift that keeps on giving! Our passengers could have been discouraged by the snow, the frost or even the shivering southern wind. But they shook it off to enjoy the how of 3 beautiful humpback whales. They remained pretty close to us…

Two faithful old friends

When we left the harbour onboard “Náttfari” this morning, we had once again fantastic weather conditions: flat sea and a beautiful autumn light. We set the course towards the western part of the bay where we had been lucky yesterday. It proved to be a good idea as it did not take us long until…

The day after the storm

We had to cancel our whale watching tours yesterday, due to very bad weather conditions out in the bay. Also today, the sea was still a bit bumpy, but we decided to head out with a group of enthusiastic whale watchers. We were setting the course towards the area where we last saw the whales,…

Winter Whale Watching

Today, winter paid us a visit here in Húsavík. When we left the harbour, the weather was very calm, but after sailing for about half an hour, it started snowing quite a lot. And it snowed and snowed and snowed….. We were sailing across all the areas where the whales had been during the last…

High waves/High whales

This was the kind of days when sea legs (or at least sea hearts) are a requirement to enjoy whales. In very difficult conditions, our passengers enjoyed a beautiful humpback whale show, made all the more unique by the impressive waves we experienced. For the first time as a whale watching guide, I even watched…

Cold waves

Today was a day for good sea legs! After a very bumpy ride this morning, we actually had to turn the boat around after few minutes out on the second tour, since we were afraid that our passenger would not enjoy the experience. But the ones that came in the morning could enjoy a fantastic…

Three species

Today was just another nice day for whale watching here in Skjálfandi Bay and it showed us once more that you never know what to expect when you go out at sea looking for whales.   During the morning tour we encountered a very nice humpback whale which was feeding close to the surface not…

Autumn joys

Our dear Husavik has now taken its Fall coat, but our two tours of the days were filled up with absouloute delights. The morning tour and afternoon tours were beautiful, with 4 to 5 humpback whales each, jumping, tail-slapping, lounge-feeding and even…. pooing on the second tour. If the weather finally reflects our time of…

Humpbacks everywhere!

We left the harbour onboard “Náttfari” this morning and headed out in beautiful autumn weather conditions into Skjálfandi Bay.   After only 15-20 minutes of sailing, we already spotted the first blow from a humpback whale and as we took some closer looks at this individual, we already saw several more blows not too far…

Endless summer

The summer seems to never end here in Husavik. The weather is just as good as it was a couple of months back and the whales have very fortunatly kept on swimming through the bay. Today, once again, Humpback Whales entertained us. Even though they were travelling a lot, we still had the chance of…
