9:00

The combination of some swell coming from the west and increasing wind coming from the south east made it quite a bumpy ride out into Faxaflói Bay today. However we were pleasantly surprised by some good sightings on our morning tour. After around 1 hour of sailing we spotted a minke whale and managed to see it come to the surface 3 times before it dived and we lost sight of it. We then heard from another whale watching boat that there were some white-beaked dolphins in the area and had a great sighting with them swimming very close to us and swimming underneath and along with the boat several times. On our way back into Reykjavik another group of dolphins quickly swam past our boat and we spotted another minke but only managed to see it very briefly. The weather forecast for the afternoon is not good, so we sadly have to cancel our next tour, but thankfully it was a relatively smooth journey back into the harbour at the end of this morning's tour.
