CLASSIC WHALE WATCHING | 13:00
Report from Eldey: today we sailed out into the beautiful and snowy Faxaflói bay, the sun had already risen, and even if it was in between the clouds, it was warming up some mountains around us. As we're in Iceland, the weather changed a bit and we got a light rain during the tour. But nothing to worry about; we just packed ourselves with nice raincoats and we were ready to spot any sign of life in the bay! About half an hour in, we spotted a small harbour porpoise, that vanished as fast as it appeared! After exploring many areas and keeping in contact with other boats, we weren´t successful in seeing anything else around, so we decided to give out complimentary tickets so the passengers have another chance of coming back and enjoying our favourite animals.
