Whale watching tours from Húsavík began in early March this year. The weather has been mostly nice and number of guests is gradually increasing. The season has started well and many species have been spotted so far including finwhale, humpback and sei whale.
The Húsavík Whale museum is now open daily from 10:00 – 16:00. The higlight of the museum is the popular full size blue whale skeleton. It is a skeleton of a 25m long female that beached on the land of Ásbúðir in Skagi, North Iceland in 2010.
