Húsavík is the whale-watching capital of Iceland and Europe, at least if you ask the locals. Húsavik is a great place to go whale watching. This small-town lives and breaths for whales. In Húsavík you will find the whale museum in Iceland. It has the skeleton of the great blue whale! Húsavík is a popular whale-watching destination, and for a good reason. Skjálfandi bay is full of whales during the summer. The Gulf Stream, which carries warm and nutritious water to Iceland, brings fish and krill along the coastline and, along comes the whale. Skjálfandi bay is the home of the Humpback whale. During whale watching, humpback whales are often seen feeding together, sometimes 3-5 individuals. A gorgeous mountain view also helps you get more likes on your Instagram. Húsavík offers several different whale watching tours from four very unlike companies. Whale watching from Húsavik is operated from Mars through September, with the high season being from July - August. The best thing about whale watching at Skjálfandi is that there you'll have the chance of seeing the world's largest animal, the Blue whale, the biggest animal of all time. Usually, from the end of May until the end of June, this giant migrates into the bay. The females become larger than the males, and therefore it is fitting to call here the queen of the world. She is graceful, and there is a calmness about her, nothing like the humpback whale or dolphins. The blue whale does not leap from the waters or put on a show for others. It lifts its tail when diving, but usually, we only see the back fin on its long, thin body. The Blue whale can reach up to 30 meters (100 ft) in length, and the tongue alone weighs the same as an elephant.
