Reykjavik - Whale Watching


Join a whale watching tour from Reykjavik, and experience the friendly giants up close in their natural environment. Depending on the season, you will be able to spot minke and humpback whales, harbour porpoises and white-beaked dolphins. The guide will supply interesting information about the different kinds of whales, and happily answer all your questions.

You can choose between two types of tours:
Whale Watching Express on the fast cruising boat from the Reykjavik harbour. Safety during this tour is guaranteed in both inside and outside cabins. The faster boat will get you to the whales in less time, which makes this tour suitable for the people with a busy schedule(May to August)
Whale Watching Classic on board of one of the biggest whale watching boats in Iceland. Fantastic inside and outside areas with plenty of space and views. Inside you have comfortable seats and big windows to observe the area, while upstairs everyone can gather around the railing to watch the magnificent waters from above. On board, there is a café and souvenir shop. This tour has an educational focus, giving you the chance to feel real whale teeth and bones and other ways to discover the nature. (All year)
