The humpbacks of Hólmavík

Home / whale diaries / The humpbacks of Hólmavík

We had another great day whale watching out of Hólmavík today. Once again there were many whales in the fjord, many of which were very close to shore. On both our trips we saw a number of humpbacks all on our own with no other boats around. On the morning tour we got to see a couple of breaches and some feeding lunges and on the afternoon tour the whales were again feeding, but a little further away from us. But right at the end a very unusual sight when a big humpback started to play in some sea weed! It was lifting its head out covered in the sea weed and then swam with it on its back! See photos.
