Whale watching from Reykjavík

Three hour whale watching tour. Minke whales and dolphins and variety of sea birds can be seen. Safety and comfort are top priorities.

Enjoy 3 hrs. at sea with our crew and specially trained naturalists in search for the whales and wildlife of Reykjavík. The city view and landscape of the bay is also not to be missed and adds that something special to the experience.

Onboard you will find several outdoor viewing platforms, an indoor saloon with large wide-range windows, a cafeteria where you can buy light refreshments, toilet facilities and a cloak room where you can borrow our blankets and overalls for the duration of the tour. You can also stay outside in the fresh air but you are also welcome to settle inside the heated lounge and observe the views from within. Our naturalists will give a commentary throughout and explain the sights and encounters as we go along.

The most common species encountered on our tours are the humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. Occasionally we see other species such as fin whales, killer whales, sei whales and long-finned pilot whales, although they are not as common.
