March Madness!!!

This morning, as we were cleaning the deck of Náttfarí from yesterday‘s snow, under cats and dogs of rain, with a massive mist over the bay, let‘s say… I wasn‘t very optimistic about our next hours with the guests! But after only few minutes out, we crossed the path of at least 25 dolphins, some…

A quiet and cheerful time

Our 11.am tour today was a very quiet one. If we started under quite a cloudy sky our morning together, the sun slowly lifted up. The whales didn´t show themselves, but the atmosphere  aboard remained a very cheering one, thanks to both the stunning panoroma offered by the snowy bay and the irresistible humour of…

Arctic sensations

Today‘s today tour went on under quite a cloudy sky. Even though the whales weren‘t kind enough to show themselves, our guests were eager to learn about the west part of the bay and its many stories. The Viknafjöll moutains have recovered part  of their snowy blankets overnight, and could therefore offer us a breathtaking…

Harbour porpoises frenzy

The scheduled tours keep on benefiting from the surprisingly enjoyable weather that bathes the Northern shores of Iceland these days. Our newly tanned crew was able to spot from up-close a large pod of harbour porpoises. These tooth whales are the smallest whales observed in the bay. And especially, they are hardly seen so close…

Sun is up!!!!

A Caribbean-like sun has once more enlightened our 11.am tour today. Even though we were unlucky in our search for whales, we did enjoy a spectacular view on Skalfandí Bay. And our very experienced guide, Nils, was able to narrate plenty of interesting anecdotes about the history of Husavik´s surroundings. Our guests were more than…

The Husavik Dolphins

Today was another fantastic day in Husavik, weatherwise. And another succesfull whale-watching trip for us! After a good hour on our whale-watching vessel Nattfari, we observed for several minutes a group of about 10 dolphins. It was our very first dolphin sighting of the year! The weather forecast seems quite good for tomorow again. So, be…

Exciting start!

Today was our second scheduled tour out in the bay. And, for our greatest pleasure, we had the surprise of spotting once more a blue whale, the largest animal to have lived on our planet! The blue whales are frequent visitors of our waters, but not in mid-march. Adding to it a beautiful sunny weather,…

Fun in the fog

Náttfari is only doing two tours a day now (but Bjössi three). Today we were able to go out after two days of storm and relevant cancellations. On both tours we had some lovely sightings. On the morning tour we had some 4-6 Minke Whales and all of them were relaxed and could be viewed,…
