Windy day with blue whales

After the great weather we've been having the last days it was still sunny today but really windy. We fortunately managed to have luck with blue whales on all the tours except the 12:30 tour where only one minke whale was spotted once. When it's windy, bumpy and sunny like today it often makes it…

The blue whales are back!

After ten days of a bay without blue whales, they were spotted again today. This morning we had seen white beaked dolphins and a humpback whale but when captain Hrólfur and me went out at 12:00 we spotted a large blow around the middle of the bay which turned out to be a blue whale, the first…

Three feeding humpbacks

The humpbacks are still in the bay, making our visitors happy. Today we witnessed three of them feeding together in the surface. They kept very much together, surfacing at the same time and so close together they seemed to be touching. All three have been spotted earlier this season and we are very glad that…

Humpbacks and dolphins

Tonight was an easy whale watching tour. We started out pretty optimistic since there had been a lot of whales in the bay today and were not disappointed. We found two beautiful humpback whales soon after leaving the harbour. They were very easy to follow and gave us a good show.   After a while…

3 humpback whales

Well, it seems as the blue whales have gone further out, at least we didn't see any today. There were however three humpback whales in the bay. I went out this morning and we found the first humpback just a mile or two out and had a really good luck with it. Furhter out we…

A whale party

I did three tours today and wow! This day was amazing. Apart from a bit strong wind during the middle of the day, the weather was nice and sunny. But there were so many blue whales and humpback whales that I soon lost track of the number even though I tried hard to count them.…

Whale watching in the fog

Tonight incredible luck and our good crew worked together to make a fantastic trip against all odds. The weather was murky and foggy when we headed out for our 8:15 pm tour, visibility was low and the Northern winds strong. But none the less everybody was prepared to try and ready for anything.   First we found three…

Still a blue whale show

Like on monday I was expecting that we might not find a blue whale today even though we saw one on all the trips yesterday but I was wrong. Two boats went out this morning, Haukur and Bjössi Sör and firs we saw one minke whale and a small dolphin family. There were two pretty…

Blue whale-day

I saw a Blue whale today for the first time in my life. I am still in shock.. I thought I had prepared myself pretty good because I knew it would probably happen to me this summer, but… the size of this animal is just overwhelming! I didn‘t really know what to say to the…

Minke whales

Unfortunately the blue whales didn't stick around for long. Today the minke whales were the main specie again and the humpback whales seem to have left the bay as well. This is how the life in the bay can change from day to day. But we had good luck with the minke whales on both…
