Whale Watching Iceland April 30th
The Humpbacks are back !!!! The early bird gets the worm ;) Monday morning , new week and a wonderful tour to start of ~ When we started our sail out weather conditions were absolutely perfect , sunshine and no waves , sunbathing by the morning houres . First we were worried to have another unlucky tour like yesterday as our eyes took hold at a big blow ahead our beautiful vessel surrounded by lotsa gannets plunging into the water ~ very close ! Surroundings were beautiful and it didn't take long when they Humpback surfaced several times near to our boat . We talking of 10 meters only ~ seeing such creature that close is always breathtaking and an unforgettable moment ~ well moments , plenty of good moments in this tour . Oh it was a fantastic tour ~ Plenty of birds , such as Gannets , Puffins , Great Black Backed Gull, Guillemots , Fulmars .. and not only the Humpback whale ~ We've seen at least 3 Minke Whales surfacing fairly close to our boat and remaining all the time . Harbour porpoises , the third species ~ we've spotted on our way back . Incredible tour !
This tour turn out rather unlucky ;( We were so optimistic because of the previous tour this morning were we have seen all together 5 whales and 3 different kinds of species , but now ~ even worse when we arrive at the finally area were we spotted the whales earlier to day , suddenly weather conditions changed around awfully . Winds , rain and fog ~ what made it most difficult was the wind blow and bit our faces . But it doesn't depends up on the weather conditions to find whales , most likely they have moved further out for better nourishment . One thing is certain , our brave passengers are now real seamen ;) Being searching for some while we heart from another boat of dolphins hanging out close by , but we weren't able to find them ~ we gave our brave passengers ~ seaman's ;) another gratis ticket to come along with us for a whale watching tour in fallowing days ~
