Yesterday we had a HUGE surprise when we headed out at sea in the morning. We saw not one, not two.. but SEVEN sperm whales!
I myself had not seen these beautiful mammals in years. They are not very common here in the bay outside of Husavik.

Every new day spent out in the bay is something special - even for the crew. Often I'm asked by our guests onboard whether watching whales doesn't get boring at some point. No, it never does as there's no two days, not even two tours, turning out to be the same.

The other day I went out on one of our morning trips. It has been great out here on the bay in August, and today we are half way through this beautiful month where we can see the season changing! We have had many different species visiting the bay these past two weeks.

With their long and narrow wings, they are the biggest sea birds of our northern hemisphere. A fully grown northern gannet reaches a wingspan of 1 meter and 80 centimeters long. They have a streamlined body shape adapted for plunge-diving at extremely high speed (up to 100 km/h).

I´m lucky enough that by working as a guide at Gentle Giants, I have the opportunity to see whales every day. Yet even though I see whales on a daily basis, it often feels like I am seeing them for the very first time, when I have passengers who are so excited to see their first whale.

Working as a whale watch guide in Húsavík allows one to have new, beautiful and memorable experiences every single day. When leaving the harbor we never know how the tour is gonna be, or what we will see.
