The great mountain of Esja was ahead of us, all white as she was covered with snow. The mountains around us always provide us with a beautiful backdrop to our photos, and, in front of them the cityscape of our wonderful capital city.
We departed on time, leaving the Old Harbour under blue skies and just a few fluffy white clouds, as glorious as weather can be. Iceland always looks stunning, whatever the weather, but we really make the most of these sunny days in winter, as the daylight hours are so few!
Another successful day on our Island Explorer Tour, departing from Reykjavik Old Harbour on the superyacht, Axel Rose, we offer this trip as a private boat. We also can use our larger yacht Amelia Rose.
Success! A wonderful day whale watching Iceland with Sea Trips Reykjavik, we found many minke whales, some white-beaked dolphins, and porpoises!
Today we went out to an area we know to be extremely rich in fish, and a prime hunting ground for hungry whales. Suddenly we saw a fin…We found a minke, it was gorgeous, and only a second later another one surfaced quite close to it! They weren’t fussed by us, and carried on feeding, popping up for a minute to breath and then diving back down for another 10minutes or so.
Success! A wonderful day whale watching in Iceland with Sea Trips Reykjavik, we found many many harbour porpoises, at least 3, possibly 5 minkes, and then had a super close encounter with a huge humpback whale! As well as a lot of sea birds, such as gannets, black-legged kittiwakes, cormorants and black-backed gulls.
A little further out we found a large humpback with a distinctive fin. It was wonderful watching it fish and circle the boat, a real moment to remember for all of our customers who all got great photos of this amazing creature.
Extraordinary! Sea Trips Reykjavik had a lovely day out on the water, the best whale watching in Iceland today!
Success! The best whale watching in Iceland today with Sea Trips Reykjavik, we found harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins and of course incredible minke whales lunge feeding right next to the boat! We also saw lot of sea birds, such as gannets, black-legged kittiwakes, cormorants and black-backed gulls.
We followed the dolphins from a distance, respectful of their space to hunt and play. They ended up leading us directly to a couple of beautiful minke whales, their dark skin shining in the light. It was wondrous to see.
