WHALE WATCHING SNÆFELLSNES

09/07/2017: We had two whale watching tours out of Ólafsvík today, and started out by seeing a large group of pilot whales very close to shore on the morning tour. They appeared to be resting vertically with their heads coming out of the water. Pilot whales are known to show this kind of resting behavior in other places of the world as well. On our morning tour, we also spotted a small Minke whale, which we then re-sighted on the afternoon trip. At the end of the second tour we spotted the pilot whales porpoising high speed into the harbour in Ríf – you can find a full report on this incident on the Orca Guardians Iceland page at: https://www.facebook.com/orcaguardians/posts/1907846132779303
We are running only one tour tomorrow morning at 10am and we still have lots of spaces available for you to join us!
