A new year has come and we all look forward to the upcoming season. But before leaving last year behind we would like to go over some of the highlights from 2016 at Gentle Giants. All in all, a great season with wonderful whale encounters, a new RIB boat and a fantastic team.

Happy holidays from the team of Gentle Giants Whale Watching!
Friday, December 16, 2016
Gentle Giants is proud to have a team which consists of both local and international people. Especially our guides come from all over the world. As our whale watching tours do not run in the winter, many of our guides leave Iceland during that period to for example, meet everyone back home, study, work elsewhere or travel.

The Icelandic nature and culture TV programme Ferðastiklur, broadcasted on RÚV, follows the writer and journalist Lára Ómarsdóttir exploring astonishing and beautiful sites of Iceland. In her latest episode from earlier this week, Lára visits Flatey Island with Gentle Giants, along with other remote destinations around our Skjálfandi Bay.

Soon it’s Christmas and as before, our boats Faldur, Sylvía and Athena have been decorated with lights. They look great and give a nice Christmassy atmosphere to Húsavík harbour in this darkest time period of the year.

Even though our whale watching season has finished, there are still many things going on around Gentle Giants. During the winter time, when boats do not sail, they undergo annual maintenance. Especially oak boats need a lot of care.

Tobias has been out with us on a whale watching trip a little while ago. When looking at his photos back in Germany, he came across this lovely shot of our oak boat Faldur and a humpback whale leaving for a dive right next to the vessel.

November has started very well here in Skjálfandi Bay with two to three humpback whales being seen on our "GG1 Whale Watching" tours.
