A windy day

It was really windy this morning so we delayed the tour for an hour because the weather forecast predicted less wind later in the day. Unfortunately the wind did not calm down so it was extremly windy the whole tour which made it difficult searching for whales. We saw though a small group of dolphins…

Humpback whale and snow

We saw the humpback whale from yesterday on both tours today. It was quite a cold tour, it was even snowing at one point, but seeing the humpback whale warmed us all up. Like sometimes in the last days the humpback whale was close to Puffin Island so we went puffin watching also. Unfortunately we probably…

Humpback whale and dolphins

The wind direction has changed and it was a slow wind from north, with temperature dropping a few degrees. Everybody forgot about the cold though when we started to see whales. First we found a group of nice dolphins that were playing and jumping a few times. Then we saw a humpback whale, but not…

Humpbacks and minke whales

This was my first day of whale watching this season.  What a joy. Nice easterly breeze, sunshine most of the day and the sea was flat and calm.   A humpback whale played with Náttfari on both tours today and two minke whales were spotted as well in the morning tour.   This is promizing. Engineer of…

4 species of whales in one day!

This was a brilliant day with a total of 4 whale species!  We did two tours, both with quite many passengers and alltogether we spotted a humpback whale, minke whales, dolphins and harbour porpoises.   The weather was beautiful, calm, sunny and warm and everyone, both crew and passengers enjoyed the trips very much.   Þórdís,…

More porpoises

The weather remains beautiful but again the only whales we saw were harbour porpoises. The bird life in the bay in the last days has been good though, we have seen a lot of puffins and the gannets. Hopefully we'll start to see some bigger whales soon.   Þórdís, guide.

Harbour porpoises

Since the day when we saw the orcas the weather has been bad so we haven't been out for four days. It was beautiful weather today though, warm and calm but unfortunately there were not many whales in the bay. We only saw a group of harbour porpoises, quite a large one though, probably around 15…

A group of orcas today!

After a 4 days break from whale watching because of bad weather we had a brilliant tour today! The weather was perfect, calm and quite warm. We had only been out for about half an hour when we saw a group of white beaked dolphins that were playing around the boat. While we were looking…

A slow day in the bay

The weather today was nice, like it has been in the last days, but we only found a group of harbour porpoises on this tour. The minke whale from yesterday was nowhere to be seen.   On the first tour I mentioned we had seen a few puffins but today it seemed like all the puffins have arrived into…
