Special fluke

Today the weather started out being very nice, and with a flat sea and we had a great tour. We found a very nice humpback whale, which had 2 yellow spots on its fluke, so it was really easy to recognize from the other humpback whales. In the afternoon, the weather became foggy, and made…

Whalewatching in Skjalfándi

The weather is fair. A little fog in the bay creates a mysterious atmosphere. As we sail to Lundey (puffin Island) we are surrounded by quite some birdlife. Arctic terns, kittiwakes, and some guillemots. At the island the puffins are going wild. Lots of them in the air today. We also spotted 2 skua’s, probably…

Sailing on Hildur

Today we’re sailing on Hildur, one of the schooners we have. Named after the valkyrie Hildr. We have some slight drizzle though luckily the whales don’t mind some rain. We started out at puffin island, most of the puffins have now laid their egg and the island is filled with their white chests. With some…

a beautiful day out

Just another beautiful sailing day out on Skjálfandi Bay. In the morning we encountered a blue whale even before reaching the Puffins at Lundey. Later we spent some time with a few humpback whales. Everybody seemed to be in a nice and calm mood today, our passengers and the whales. On the was back to…

Sea, sails and sun

It was a lovely sailing today on Hildur. The sun was shinning and the wind conditions were perfect for a great sailing time. Our passengers were rewarded of their participation with sails by the presence of numerous humpbacks. It was one of these days when all seems to work effortlessly thanks to mother nature. Let’s…

Hide and seek on sails

Our schooner Hildur was put up to quite a challenge today: following the whales on wind power. The day was ideal for some nice sailing but our friends the giants happened to be quite difficult to catch up.  As our guests were brilliantly helping the crew with the manoeuvres, we eventually all got a good…

All sails up!

Today, it was a good choice to come with us on Hildur. On the morning tour, we oysted sails straight out of the harbor. Our passengers got to help us with this and to enjoy a nice sailing towards Lundey, the puffin island. After which, we kept sailing as we crossed the bay and met…

The big blue is back!

The sea was calmer but it was rainy and weet. Even though the bad weather its a day I’ll never forget. When we had past puffin Island too have a look at the puffins and then sailed for a bit, that’s when it happened. The biggest living animal on earth emerged from the sea to…

A good day on sea!

Today we first went to Puffin Island, where there just were puffins flying around everywhere – you could just see how clumsy they are and how beautiful it’s beak is. Then we sailed to the west and it took us some time to find the first whales, but then we could suddenly see the blow…

Big waves, but big whales also!

Today was a tricky for stomachs. The sea was again pretty rough and made spottings of whales complicated. Still, we managed to enjoy the presence of whales in each tours, humpbacks beeing sighted on each Bjossi Sör trips. Let’s hope that the sea remains that giftfull over the next days and that our friends the…

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
