 PREMIUM TOUR CANCELLED |  20:00

Due to unfavourable weather conditions, the premium tour at 20:00 has been cancelled.

 

✔ CLASSIC TOUR ON SCHEDULE |  13:00

Report from Elding: The weather was similar to this morning, sunny but with a cold wind. We went straight to the area where the humpback whale was seen this morning and circled scanning the sea to find the signs of the presence of the whale. We found a humpback whale again there, probably the same even if it is not possible to confirm at 100%. Once again the whale was surfacing close to the boat and was very easy to follow. We also had the visit of 4-5 white beaked dolphins that came toward us, arrived near the humpback and our boat and disappeared. We could stay a bit longer with the feeding humpback and when we decided to let the animal alone it kindly said goodbye with a beautiful fluke dive.

✔ CLASSIC TOUR ON SCHEDULE |  09:00

Report from Elding: Turns out that today's weather was excellent, after many days of rain we finally had a sunny. It was a bit cold with the wind coming from the north but when we were sailing with the wind coming from the back it was really enjoyable. There was some waves but not enough to be uncomfortable. We first went near Akranes enjoying a nice view on the moutain Akrafjall. We could not find anything in the beginning so we went more south. We finally met a friendly humpback whale that surfaced so close from our boat, provoking the exclamation of our passengers. We could watch this whale surfacing for long minutes before we had to go back to Reykjavík.

Today we will be operating on our lovely vessel Elding for the 09:00 and 13:00 Classic tours. 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.
