We spotted a Minke whale quite far out in the bay. It kept going for deep dives, so there must have been a lot of food for it to eat.
This tour was quite unique, as after sailing for about 5 minutes, we spotted a blow behind us, so we turned around to investigate. Turned out to be a Minke Whale.
Join us as we hunt for the Aurora Borealis
the sea was too rough to sail today for whale watching
The weather gods say no
Good visibility at sea and wind from the south
Here´s to hoping the weather improves over the next days.
After sailing for a while, we saw a pod of White Beaked Dolphins, many of them were surfacing together, and we probably had around 10 of them in total.
We sailed from the Harbour in Hafnarfjörður out into the bay, due to unfavorable weather conditions outside of Reykjavík. We spotted a lot of seabirds on this tour, like Auks, Eider ducks and Fulmars, but the most noticeable one were the Gannets. There were so many of them flying around, and we noticed that they started dive-bombing, a behavior they show when feeding.
After sailing out into the bay, we spotted something popping out of the water, turns out it was a Harbour Porpoise. We then noticed that a few of them were around us, even though they were shy we spotted at least 5 of them.
