20 white-beaked dolphins

Home / whale diaries / 20 white-beaked dolphins

We had two beautiful sunshine tours today! On our morning tour, we spotted a group of about 20 white-beaked dolphins early on during the trip. They were feeding at the mouth of Grundarfjördur, together with hundreds of gulls hovering over them and trying to steal bits of the fish. The gulls were picking up capelin, which is the fish currently moving into Breidafjördur and is also attracting the humpback whales. Indeed, we also spotted a humpback whale on this trip, once we went further out! This humpback whale went for long dives, but we could see it arching the back on the water surface several times. On our afternoon trip, we, once again, spotted the white-beaked dolphins in the sunshine – this time a smaller group. We had to cancel our tours tomorrow due to bad weather conditions, but we hope to get out on sea again on Sunday.
