✔ CLASSIC TOUR ON SCHEDULE |  13:00

Report from Elding: We were expecting strong northerly winds today but the seas were surposed to be ok as we were getting shelter from the mountains. This was not the case however, the wind changed to the northwest and brought some large waves with it. The captain did a great job of keeping the boat as stable of possible and our crew were out making sure the passengers were comfortable. We couldn´t go too far offshore so we checked our productive areas to the south and found loads of seabirds, usually a good sign for finding whales. Many enjoyed seeing the cute puffins around also. Unfortunately at this time the wind and waves were getting stronger so we made the decision to head home early. This is definitely Icelands weather at its best, changing its mind in the last minute. We offered our passengers complimentary tickets in the hope they can come  another time for free either Reykjavik or Akureyri.

Today we will be operating on our lovely vessel Elding for the 13:00 Classic tour. Make sure to dress appropriately for the tours as it is always colder on sea than on land. Join us by booking online or contact us directly for more information (elding@elding.is / +354 519 5000). There can always be some movement out on the bay, so if your are prone to sea sickness we have sea sickness tablets available at our ticket office.
