Humpabacks and puffins

Home / whale diaries / Humpabacks and puffins

Out in Hólmavík today we spent more time with a humpback that has become known as ‘Dotty’ which has been seen a lot in the fjord over the last week or more. This whale has been seen feeding recently near the beautiful island of Grimsey, often surrounded by hundreds of puffins as well, as they may be feeding on the same stuff. On the afternoon tour we briefly saw a second humpback as well, but again spent most of our time with Dotty. Judith (Tour guide)

The puffin tours we run through the summer from our hometown of Grundarfjörður in the Snæfellsnes peninsula are having a great season with many puffins being seen on and around the island. On our tours you can get very close to the island, allowing for some great photo opportunities. These photos were taken by our guide Karl.
