Two blue whales were spotted on Skjalfandi bay today, by passengers and crew members on board the whale watching boat Náttfari. Blue whales are the largest mammals on eart and can reach up to about 33 metres in length.

In past years, blue whales have usually been spotted in Skjalfandi bay in the first weeks of June and throughout summer, so this early arrival came as a surprise to both crew and passengers.
