Disturbance of the ferry in September
Seatours has been trying to get a new and bigger ferry to replace the one we have at the moment. We found a replacement with a 40-45% larger and closed car deck.
Due to some schedule changes we are sailing the following days

A change from driving if going to the Westfjords
We had a day to drive from Reykjavik to Isafjörður. We could have driven all the way, but that would have stopped us going on the Snæfellsnes peninsula (even though we did not have time – or the right weather to visit Snæfell itself). That is the problem of a schedule – you can’t afford to miss the boat. Departures from Stykkishólmur 0900 and 1545. I gather it is best to do it this way round – because there is nothing to do at Brjánslækur on the peninsula side.
The boat is well designed.
A comfortable ~150 passenger boat allows great views of thousands of nesting seabirds including puffins, cormorants, fulmars and kittiwakes. The boat stops as close as possible to the searocks/islands with nest covered ledges. Ad an additional bonus the boat stopped to view nesting White-tailed Sea Eagles. Because of the eagle's endangered status the boat did not approach as close as it did to the rocks with commoner birds.
