30 orcas and 3 humpback whales today!

Home / whale diaries / 30 orcas and 3 humpback whales today!

We were looking at 30 orcas and 3 humpback whales today! Our morning tour left towards West along the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and we spotted two humpback whales right at the beginning of the trip. They were circling the boat and then started travelling. Soon afterwards we encountered three different orca groups, and counted at least 6 small ones in total! These babies were actively participating in the feeding process, taking long dives with their mothers, and even coming up in pairs. We saw the orcas form a big travel line on their way towards West, and we got to see gannets dive-bombing into the water for fish as well. There was a puffin next to the boat, and on the way home we met yet another humpback whale. Good times!
