Northern Lights by Boat Diary 5th February 2014

It was a rainy afternoon but the whales kept being under the surface.

We took a long stretch around the bay and it looked pretty mystical, as there was fog out there.

When leaving the harbour a lot of cormorants and eider ducks were sitting on the docks. Later on we saw flocks of eider ducks on the bay, as well as fulmars and a couple of gannets.

The whales didn't show up though unfortunately.

The ride was quite smooth even though there was quite big waves at times.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Diary 5th February 2014

What a great tour today with lots of White-Beaked dolphins greeting us when we got out to the bay! We sailed from Hafnarfjörður again as yesterday, because the sea conditions were a lot better on that side - and our passengers of course got the nice overalls to keep warm and cosy while out in the Icelandic weather!

Sightings: Dolphins
Birds: Kittiwakes, Gannets
