Let’s spot some whales!

This classic whale watching tour from Reykjavik is probably your best bet on spotting Mink whales, White-beaked dolphins, Harbour porpoises and the occasional Humpback whales in their natural environment just outside Reykjavik.

The ship used for the tour has a large indoor saloon with an onboard café where you can buy light refreshments, bathroom facilities and a cloakroom where you can borrow one of our blankets or overalls on colder days.

You can either stay outside in the fresh air, but you are also welcome to stay inside the heated lounge and observe the views from within, through our panoramic windows. One of the excellent guides will commentate on the sights at hand through the intercom system on board and are happy to answer any questions you may have throughout the tour.

Summer season (1 April – 31 October) is prime season for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at it’s highest peak! During the summer is the time when the Minke whales are at their most abundant, along with White-beaked dolphins, Harbour porpoises, and the occasional Humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment.

 

Good to know.

The weather can change quite frequently in Iceland, and therefore we reserve the right to alter routes and itineraries by sailing from other harbors in the nearby area where the weather or sightings are more favorable each time, which could result in a slightly longer tour so make sure your schedule is flexible.

Please be aware that we can never guarantee sightings on a particular tour. The estimated duration of the tour is standard times and can change according to conditions at sea. Although our success rate is high, the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores.

Please note this tour is subject to weather so it could be canceled with short notice.
