This tour has different starting times depending on day and season from one to six departures a day.

Pick-up is not included but it is possible to get picked up to your accommodation for an extra charge.

The animals most frequently seen on tours are the Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins, and Porpoises. Our qualified guides do an excellent job with providing you with information and giving you the best opportunities to see and learn all about the wildlife. Learn all about the sea life while coasting through Faxaflói bay. Please understand that weather and sea conditions play a big role in how much we actually see. However, each experience is unique and well worth booking! No two whale watching trips are ever the same. Due to unreliable impending forecasts and such, we take sea conditions and weather into account when booking the trips. We will put you in the best situation possible.

We rarely have to go further than 15 km from the harbor. For your comfort and warmth, we offer special suits on board. We do advise that you wear your warmest clothes  – hats, scarves, gloves etc – as it can get very cold (even on the warmest days) when the boat is in motion. We also offer hot drinks and soup in our onboard café. Our boats are built so that you have the option to watch the whales from inside as well. With the large windows and inside warmth, you can enjoy the animals of the North Atlantic from a very comfortable view. Each trip takes about 2,5 – 3,5 hours. This is a great trip for the whole family!

Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing.
