Perfect weather for our whale watching tour today 🙂 We spotted several minke whales and a large pod of white beaked dolphins
We were lucky enough to witness one of the biggest geomagnetic storms of the solar cycle! The show was simply unbelievable, the lights kept dancing and dancing getting very bright and showing lots of different colors
Departure at 22:00 from the old Harbor
It was exciting to be able to go out after several days of really bad weather. We had some wind from the east and also some wave movement on the way out. Soon after we came to the south west of Akranes we saw a pod of white beaked dolphins.
Today we sailed from the old harbour in Reykjavík, and even though we still had some swell, the sailing was pleasant for most of the tourists, even though some of the more sensitive ones felt queezy. We spotted a pod of White Beaked dolphins, about 10 animals total. We stayed with them for a good while, and then returned to Reykjavík.
Icelanders are well known for being obsessed with the weather but it really is an unusual winter this year. It just won’t stop snowing 🙂 So now Reykjavík is all white and fluffy.
