The whales don’t mind the weather!

We had two wet and windy tours from Hólmavík today. The conditions were not easy to find whales, but we did see humpbacks on both tours. The whales were doing quite a lot of travelling today, but we did see a humpback breach in the distance on the morning tour. The afternoon tour was very lucky when a different whale breached twice while we were watching it travelling with a second whale. Judith (Tour guide)

We had one tour out of Ólafsvík today in the afternoon, and spotted two species – one sperm whale and several orcas! We could observe the sperm whale for some time as he had come up from a deeper dive right next to our boat. Interestingly enough, this sperm whale did not lift up the fluke when going for a longer dive again, but we were quickly distracted by looking at some orcas travelling spread out in Breidafjördur. We could watch them surf the waves a bit, which is always a spectacular sight. Marie (Spotter)
