These energetic students from the local upper secondary school were invited whale watching with us today. 🐳 They attend a unique Whale Watching Guide course that our assistant manager Daniel has taken an active part in developing and teaching. 🎓 This is possible when you live in Húsavík – the Whale Capital of Iceland. . . . . . #gentlegiantswhalewatching #locals #privilege #húsavík #somuchfun #learningforlife
Today is First Day of Summer – a cheerful holiday in Iceland that brings a promise about even brighter times ahead. 🌞 To celebrate this we would like to share with you the heart-warming story about when (yet another) passenger popped the question on board one of our whale watching tours the other day. 💍 Our head guide Aksel Bjarnason was there and you can read how describes the tour through following the link in our bio. ❤️ Photos: Aksel Bjarnason

LIVE NEWS: SPERM WHALES NOW IN OUR BAY 🐳🐳 Two sperm whales are currently in Skjálfandi Bay and our captain Halli just gave a live report from on board RIB Amma Helga. 🚤 He said the first one they found was logging on the surface which made it possible for the passengers to get a very peaceful close-up encounter with this special, and to us very rare, gentle giant. 🐋 Another sperm whale was found in a different part of the bay and the morning Big Whale Safari & Puffins passengers got to enjoy both of them. ✨ We want to congratulate the lucky guests who got this opportunity. No one knows how long these sperm whales will stay by us - which is also the excitement of whale watching, that every trip is a new adventure. 👇🏻 Use promo code WHALESPUFFINS for 15% discount on GG2 Big Whale Safari & Puffins in April.

Already as a small child Aksel Bjarnason was standing by the shore, looking for whales from land. 👀 At the age of eleven he encountered a big whale for the first time, while fishing with his dad in Norway. 🐋 After three years as a whale watching guide by us he took a one-year break but is now back in Húsavík, his second home – as our head guide. ✨ Get to know Aksel better through reading the news article on our website.
