A blue whale was spotted on our tours in the afternoon. This is great news and unique to see the largest mammal on earth at this time of year. Blue whales can reach up to 33 metres and 190 tons. Hopefully the blue whale will stay around for some time.

Apart from a busy whale watching summer, there has been a high demand for all kinds of private tours. We have shaped unique adventures for groups, families and individuals to get their own tailor made experience of Skjálfandi Bay.

According to new guidelines from the Icelandic government, all passengers are required for the next weeks to wear a face mask on board the tour. This is done for the safety and health for passengers and staff to try to limit any spread of the virus.

Húsavík – the Whale Capital of Iceland at its best. Many humpback whales have been spotted in Skjálfandi Bay lately and even been showing very active and curious behaviours to much joy for passengers and crew.

July has been very successful so far. Many humpback whales have been spotted in the bay, the weather has been very nice and high demand for our tours. It is good to see Húsavík full of summer life and guests from all over visiting again.

Whilst the weather might not have been entirely perfect during the last days, the humpback whales put on a show that made up for everything:
Whilst just some days ago we watched them feast on fish all day long, these last days they suddenly started to interact a lot or show their acrobatic skills - often in a style that appeared to be a way of communication among each other.

"Where the mountains sing through the screams of seagulls / Where the whales could live 'cause they're gentle people / In my hometown, my hometown".
Húsavík plays a major role in Will Ferrell's Netflix movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga which was released on June 26th.

Among an uncountable number of humpbacks, which were feeding in various areas of the bay yesterday, a giant surprise awaited us along the way: a huge blue whale was sharing the waters of Skjálfandi Bay with the humpbacks, probably to catch a well deserved snack whilst on its migration towards the Arctic.

Our tours last weekend have once again been wonderful: The bay was full of life and neither the weather turned its back on us! Dolphins patrolled several areas of the bay and a couple of humpback whales were feasting on Skjálfandi Bay's menu.
