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!

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.
