A Whale Of A Tale

“I just want to see one,” said the little boy while clutching his mother’s pant leg and walking along the plank onto the boat. From the first moment you are invited on the boat, the excitement builds. That’s the big attraction with Iceland, you see things in a natural setting. This isn’t Disneyland. The guide of our whale watching trip with Reykjavík Sailors starts listing off the safety rules:

“Rule number 1, don’t do anything stupid–actually, that’s the only rule. It all boils down to that. I want to make it back alive and I’m running on the assumption that you guys do too.”

He goes over the layout of the ship, but after that we’re out on the ocean, searching for whales, birds and whatever we can find. Unless you’re a whale biologist or Faroese whale hunter, it’s not very often you can see a whale breach and hear its lungs blast water into the cool ocean air. Our photographer managed to capture a little bit of our adventure.
