WHALE WATCHING FROM REYKJAVÍK
Classic whale watching tour from Reykjavík
Enjoy 3 hrs. at sea with our expert crew and specially trained naturalists in search for the whales and wildlife of Reykjavík. The city view and landscape of the bay is not to be missed and adds that something special to the experience!
Meet the team in the Wildlife Exhibition by the floating pier at the Old Harbour. One of our excellent naturalists will give a commentary throughout the tour and explain the views and encounters along the way.
Most common whales seen in Faxaflói bay are minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. The whales are most abundant in summer, giving us a great chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment while they are feeding on fish and krill near our shores, although each year continues to surprise us with the variety of wildlife we see in winter and our research shows that more and more whales are staying in the area year round!
This tour has a sighting guarantee! If no wildlife is encountered on the tour, you can join us another day free of charge.
Please keep in mind that the safety and enjoyment of our passengers is our number one priority and therefore the tour could get cancelled on short notice.
*This whale watching tour is not operated on our boat SAGA. It is operated on a more powerful and bigger boat.
