The sun is back…

The weather was quite enjoyable today in Husavik. The sea was a bit wavy and the wind cold, but the sun was up through most of the tours But after beautiful serie of succesfull days, we were unlucky with the whales. This makes us even more humble towards Mother Nature and its jewels. We could…

Blue snow

It was a rather cold day out at sea. While going through a very windy tour in the morning, we still had the chance to find one of yesterday´s blue whales. It was rather calm and eventually came pretty close to the boat. In the afternoon, the weather turned to snow, but our guests still…

Electron blue

Today was a fantastic whale watching day! We saw 2 blue whales during our morning tour, nice enough to lift their impressive fluke tails out of the water. They were actively feeding themselves and sometimes a little hard  to follow. One of them was still there in the afternoon, together with a humpback whale, the…

Blue Magic

The streak goes on!!!! After a complicated, but yet charming tour this morning, we encoutered again some blue whales in the afternoon! The passengers all got a very good look at them, as our captain Már could let them approach the boat from up-close. A minke whale even briefly showed itself! It was a moment…

I´m Blue Da Ba Dee

Today was at first quite complicated out at sea. Despite a great visibility over the whole bay and a fantastic weather, we were enable to find a whale during our morning tour. And the second tour started out to be pretty much the same. But after two hours and a half, on our way back…

Blue Monday

For the second day in a row, we were lucky enough find whales. The morning tour started with a tiny minke whale and later, we increased in size with the same majestic blue whale that we saw yesterday. It was still there this afternoon, very calm and even showing some spectacular behaviours by rolling on…

Snowy landscape and harbour porpoises

After a day without going out in the bay, due to bad weather condition, we went out for our first day with two tours this season. The weather was still a little rainny but the visibility was excellent. Despite our best efforts, we still weren´t able to find large whales, even though a nice group…

White-Beaked dolphins in the sun

Another sun shining day enlightened our tour today. But once again, it wasn´t a day to forget his gloves, because the south wind was polar! After an hour of wandering out in the bay, we met with a nice group of dolphins. They weren´t that playful, since they were obviously busy feeding. They still came…

Cold tour BUT a nice “a little” companion

More than 50 adventurers came today with us on the boat, for a very sunny but very windy and cold tour. And it is after at least 2 good hours of intense searching that we finally had the chance to spot a minke-whale next to the so-called „Fish-Rock“. This was quite a small individual, but…

They DID let the sunshine in….

The sun is finally back with us in the bay! After few stormy days, our guests were finally able to enjoy a beautiful sight on our daily tour. We weren‘t lucky with the whales, despite our best efforts. But the guests will for sure keep a very memorable souvenir of this scenic cruise. Close to…

Quite an adventure!!!

From time to time, mother nature reminds us that she is way stronger than us. We had been forced over the last two days to cancel trips, due to bad weather conditions. So as we went out at sea, our passengers were up for a true arctic experience! The sea was a little bumpy and…

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…

Extremely rare killer whales spotting in the bay!

For the first time since the beginning of our daily-scheduled tours, the sun was not with us as we left Husavik‘s harbour. And for close to 3 hours, the picturesque Skalfandí Bay was the only thing that could have warmed our hearts. But just as we were coming back empty-handed, a large pod of about…

Large crowd/ Large Sun

The days go by in Husavik and the beautiful weather has not yet left us. We welcomed today quite a large crowd for this time of the year. And if the whales are not yet back with us, our guests still very much enjoyed the ever more stunning lanscape on the East side of the…

Nice discovery of our, slightly more, snowy bay

It is with an extended crew that we went out at sea today. In addition to the captain Már, our guide Nils and I, Samuel, former North Sailing guide and futur North Sailing Captain, joined us today, on the lookout for whales. If this search happened to be unsuccesful, our very dear Skalfandí Bay guarantied…

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…
