Three species day in Hólmavík

Home / whale diaries / Three species day in Hólmavík

It was a calm but very wet day in the Westfjords today. Our morning whale watched braved the weather and got to see a Minke whale very close just out of the harbour. After this we got a brief glimpse at what we believe were northern bottlenose whales in the fjord once again. Then we found the humpback whales and were incredibly lucky to see two lunge-feeding humpbacks close together with hundreds of puffins and other birds around them! The fjord felt very alive today.

Out of Ólafsvík we saw a sperm whale go down but it was far from the boat. Sadly we did not find any other cetaceans and so gave our passengers free tickets if they wanted to try again.
