The Wonders of Whale Watching
Have a whale of a time visiting Iceland!
The nutrient rich waters surrounding Iceland provide plentiful food throughout the year for a variety of marine life including whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, seabirds and basking sharks. As a marine biologist, Megan Whittaker, instantly fell in love with Iceland when she first arrived in 2008 and is still enthralled with it today. As a whale-watching naturalist for Elding Whale Watching Reykjavik, one of the leading whale watching companies in Iceland, Megan inspires others, while capturing the life changing moments with her Nikon DSLR.
Everything you need to know about whale watching
With many years of experience, listening to what her passengers require from their tour and answering their questions, Megan thought it would be a good idea to develop a book to present this information in a fun but educational way. “In co-operation with Edda Publishing The Wonders of Whale Watching in Iceland was born and will hopefully not only inspire our guests with the wonders of watching whales in Iceland but also help them plan future visits,” says Megan.
The book is filled with Megan's beautiful pictures, fun facts and everything you need to know about whale watching in Iceland, all written by Megan. It can be bought at most Eymundsson bookshops but those who want a more personal touch can buy a signed copy at the Elding Whale Watching ticket office, down at the old harbor. The Wonders of Whale Watching in Iceland will give whale enthusiasts all they need to know in a small, handy, fit-in-your-suitcase book to take home and cherish forever. “Combining three of my passions; working with marine life, people and photography, I am living my dream. Iceland with its stunning scenery, wonderful people, plentiful wildlife and magical aurora borealis is and will always be my home,” says Megan who looks forward to seeing all whale enthusiasts on their up-coming whale-watching excursions.
