Go ahead Jump!

It was a very bouncy day at sea. The weather conditions were excellent but the sea remained quite challenging for some of our guests. But still, the courage of our passengers was well rewarded as the humpback whales were all around us. One of them even put up a show, as it jumped for more…

A roller coaster ride!

Today I learned a new icelandic word; Alta. Alta means swell. The swell was high, up to 4-5meters because of the bad weather previous day. I think the one who enjoyed it the most was the captain onboard, Arnar. The ship was rooling over the waves like beeing on a roller coaster. The whales seemed…

Four species a day……

Today I went on three very nice whale watching tours onboard “Bjössi Sör” and they all turned out to be very successful.   On the first tour we managed to find two humpback whales close to Húsavík harbour. They were pretty relaxed and we got some good looks at them until we decided to head…

Cold but magical

Despite the cold and clouded morning we started our day in the Skjálfandi Bay very optimistic. We only had to travel a short time until we spotted our first whale spout. It turned out to be a humpback whale. We stayed with it for some magical moments and then continued our trip to the west.…

Misty & magical

Hello! Today was really good when it came to the whales. We saw several humpbacks whales and some minkie whales. It was very misty today and a bit rainy but we didn´t let that stop us from enjoying the show and the tour! Also, there were alot of birds around us and plenty of leftovers…

Calm sea & good wibes

Góðan daginn! (Good morning) Today has been really nice.

Quite a crazy day today! Not only were we lucky enough to see our most frequent swimmers, the humpback whales, but we were visited by the most gigantic animal that ever was on our planet: The Blue Whales!!!Dolphins joined in the mix later making this day very very special. And when the humpback whales started…

The Big Five of Skjálfandi Bay

We have been incredibly lucky with the weather and the whales during the last couple of weeks and today was no exception!   On our morning tour on “Garðar” we managed to spot 5 different species of cetaceans, something that does not happen very often during the season. It started with a humpback whale just…

Jump!

Góðan daginn! Today has been very good. It´s been a little cloudy but the sea was calm and both of the tours were very enjoyable. We had not been sailing for a long time when a blow from distance caught our eyes and before we knew it we were surrounded by humback whales and minky…

Show must go on!

Today was amazing, we saw four species; Humpback whales, Minke whales, Harbour propises and White beaked dolphins. One Humpback decided to put on a special show for us, we started seeing him breaching in the distance and then we got closer, he breached with his whole body a few times and then did a little…

Foggy and mysterious

Today was a little bit foggy here at the bay, but that didn’t stop us from meeting up with our great giant friends, the fog just made everything a little mystical and magical. We came to the west side of the bay and bumped into around 8 humpback whales enjoying a big sushi buffet and…

A show far beyond our expectations

In the beginning of every tour we remind our passengers that we’re heading into the wild nature, meaning that there’s no guarantee for any sightings or activity. However, today it wasn’t necessary to keep expectations on a low level. None of us was expecting the incredible show that was awaiting us in the western part…

A blue whale in the bay

Today was awesome! The minkes and the humpbacks where at their usual spot around the mountains. They have been there now for some days. There is still alot of food close to the mountains so they are really busy and don’t dive for long. Then we got news about a blue whale in the bay.…
