Roller-coaster was open and ready for business today in Faxafloi! We experienced during the whole day a long swell with big waves but it just made it more fun to sail! We were rocking the waves and enjoying the views of the snowy mountains, double rainbows and some nice encounters as well. Harbour porpoises, minkes and tons of northern gannets. But the starts of the day were white-beaked dolphins as they came close to us, leaping and delighting our passengers with their huge size. We had the privilege too of “surfing” the waves as we headed back to Reykjavik.
