Belugas in Vestmannaeyjar

Two beluga whales moved to Vestmannaeyjar in the year 2019. The Sea Life Trust Beluga Whale Sanctuary moved them to Iceland from China where they used to be show-cased in a small pool. By bringing them to Iceland they can spend their retirement years in half-freedom in the Klettsvík bay. While they wanted to set them free the belugas could not take care of themselves in the nature. By taking a trip to Klettsvík bay you can visit the belugas and see them in the nature. By taking a trip to visit  Little White and Little Gray you are providing for their health care and food.
