WHALE WATCHING TOUR | 13:00

Report from Eldey: Finally we were able to head back out into Faxaflói Bay after a few cancelled days due to the stormy conditions we have been having  throughout the country. Also nice to go out in sunshine which has also been shy lately. We motored first to the north west and after 1 hour we found a very large scattered pod of white-beaked dolphins, at least 20-30 individuals, spread out over a very large area. Birds even got involved in the strategic feeding behaviours they were observed doing. Unfortunatly no whales but the dolphins were definitely made up for that and stole the show.  A bit of swell left in the bay but generally a very comfortable tour.
