Whale Watching at 11:00
What a wonderful day to be out on the water! It was beautifully sunny and the fjord was mirror flat which made very fine sailing . It was a little bit chilly due to the winds but the lovely whale punches we serve on board warmed the passengers up like a dream. There were a few birds out on the fjord today including; black-backed gulls, Icelandic gulls, northern fulmars, eider ducks and the cute little common guillemots in their winter plumage. There didn´t seem to be much food or fish in the fjord today and that may be the reason no cetaceans were seen on today´s tour. Therefore, complimentary tickets were offered to all our passengers, in the hope that they would return and get to experience some of the wonderful marine animals Iceland has to offer.
