Last weekend surprised us in many ways: first of all several humpback whales had made their way into the bay. All of them were travelling calmly and spent a long time on the surface resting. Therefore, we were able to get some excellent looks at these magnificent marine mammals.

The beauty of Skjálfandi Bay and its ever-changing appearance make every single day become a new adventure. It's simply impossible to look one's fill as the colours of the mountains and the sky change throughout the day.

Yesterday in the early afternoon word spread of a pod of orcas having made its way into Skjálfandi Bay. Far out in the northern parts of the bay, our RIB speed boat Amma Helga had come across them whilst out for the afternoon “GG2 Big Whale Safari & Puffins” tour.

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.

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.

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.
