The smoothest sea all summer meant that yet again we were in for an incredible day on the water. Minke whales and harbour porpoises were sighted within ten minutes of leaving Reykjavik and continued to be a seen throughout the duration of the trip. With our engines switched off, we remained motionless in the bay, watching and listening to not only the cetaceans but the many gannets, as they squawked and dove towards the waters surface like arrows raining from the sky. A beautiful, relaxed day whale watching in Faxaflói.
