Whale Watching Iceland March 31st
Whale watching Iceland March: Today we had perfect spring weather, calm ocean and a crisp breeze. We knew that any whale out there was ours to find. After a nice sail with entertaining northern fulmars and a fly-over from a huge yellow headed gannet we saw splashing and some dorsal fins close by. A pod of white beaked dolphins were closing in on us, head on. Very soon after spotting them we had probably around 20 white beaked dolphins all around us, with calves and everything. They were a 'beaut' as someone might phrase it. They were, after a while, hard to follow and since we stress on not stressing our friends we decided to head further out and try our luck elsewhere. Lady Luck was obviously one of our passengers today. Only a few minutes later we were surrounded by somewhere over a hundred white beaked dolphins, and boy did they give us a show. They threw themselves many times their length in to the air, spun in the air, splashed as much as they could, slapped their tail on the surface and so many other stunts that counting them up like this would give me carpal tunnel from writing it all. And they were so close too! We could enjoy all of their beautiful shades right underneath our noses, literally. We had gotten quite a long show from them, saw them feeding in between as well, so we thanked them for the show and sailed further out hoping there were some other, bigger, whales with the same spirit. We had no such luck that time but with the weather as nice as it was and beautiful scenery, we soared with the northern fulmars, kitty wakes, guillemots, eider ducks and our other feathered friends back towards Reykjavik, ready for another adventure when the night has passed. We hope everyone liked this whale watching Iceland tour.
