13:00

 

We started our morning tour with the fresh breeze but very sunny, the sea was not too rough because the wind came from the mountains and it was good for us. After one hour sailing, we spotted some white-beaked dolphins in front of our boat. They were surfacing in an area where the sun was reflecting on the water and it seemed like a sunset on the sea decorated with dolphins. Later, they disappeared under the water and they should swim far away, because we did not see them anymore :( We sailed up and down around the bay, but this time we were not lucky. At least, we could take a couple of nice pictures.

We started our trip in a very sunny but freezing day, as we are reaching the Winter, the breeze is very cold. The sea was not very rough and that would be something in our favor to spot whales. Once we reached the feeding grounds, we spotted white-beaked dolphins that were surfacing several times around our boat. They were everywhere and they passed very close to our ship, like controlling us, because we are in their territory :)

Anyway, only dolphins are not enough for us, and for this reason we offer to the passengers another time to come again with us within 2 years and try again.

Unfortunately this afternoon wasn't so lucky for us as yesterday. I gues that all sea creatures decided to spend a lazy sunday after crazy saturday ;) We was fighting till the end for chance to spot them. We sailed in a big loop towards the north of the bay, hoping to encounter some friendly minkes or white dolphines but then
the weather had taken a turn for the worse in our way back. The storm was chasing us. It is amazing how quickly the weather can change here in Iceland!
So sadly despite our best efforts we did not have any luck in spotting any whales this afternoon. So of course we offered everyone a complimentary return ticket to come back and try again another day

Today, apart of the snow and the cold (typical here) it hasn't been too windy, so, it helped us to spot our friends in the sea. Fist, we saw a group of dolphins that they were not far from the boat. After some times around us, they dissapeared; but the good thing was that a bit further away, we saw a minke whale that surfaced several times and all of us could see it, till we finally had to come back to the harbor.

Although the forecast started to be very good, then fell down to number 1/9 in the scale of aurora activity. But we were lucky and finally we saw a nice northern lights show, with an amazing green colour that made us get happy and forget the cold weather :)

The morning was full of snow everywhere, and when we started to sail it was snowing goo!! In this trip, unfortunately we didn't see any whale today. Only saw a couple of dolphins that dissapeared soon afterwards. So, our passengers that still haven't joined us can reschedule their trips to come again within 2 years.

Each tour is soooo different, we will see tomorrow.

No whales today. the weather was really rough and we decided to turn around after some time. Although there were no whales we were contacted by the coastguard who wanted to use our boat for rehearsing an emergency situation on sea. We complied and were greeted by a helicopter. No northern lights for today.
