Yesterday was a very social day for Gentle Giants when we attended the Natural Icelandic Tourism Workshop Mannamót. The name means "people coming together" and suits well for this event where more than 250 tourism companies from all over Iceland gather to present their businesses.

Happy New Year to all our friends around the world! A new year has begun, a year full of exciting opportunities and plans. The next season will start earlier than ever, on 1st March. But before we shift all focus to the future, we would like to take a quick look back at our highlights of 2018.
Long story short, Gentle Giants had a great year with amazing whale encounters, new state-of-the-art headquarters and a fantastic team to be very proud of.

There is still plenty of action here in the bay, off the coast of Húsavík. We are seeing plenty of humpback whales everyday. A few minke whales and the occasional pod of white-beaked dolphins are also visiting Skjalfandi bay these days.

It is starting to turn into a beautiful wintery scene here in North Iceland as we enter our final month of our whale-watching season. Even though this is our final month, the whales have still been delighting passengers and crew out in the bay.

An important thing in life is to collect memories. Working with whale watching a whole summer here in Husavik definitely guarantees a whole lot of them!
