YEAR ROUND REYKJAVIK CLASSIC WHALE WATCHING
Whales, Dolphins And Sea Birds
In Search For The Whales And Wildlife Of Reykjavík
This is the original whale watching tour from Reykjavík and one of the most popular attractions in Iceland! Join us for a chance to encounter the incredible whales and dolphins of Faxaflói bay.
The most common species encountered on our tours are the minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. Occasionally, we see other species such as killer whales, fin whales, sei whales and long-finned pilot whales, although they are not as common. 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!
All our boats have inside and outside areas. 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 stay outside in the fresh air but you are also welcome to settle inside the heated lounge and observe the views from within.
Our excellent naturalists will give a commentary throughout and explain the sights and encounters as we go and the crew is happy to answer any questions you may have along the way.

Good to know
This is a wildlife excursion and as such we can never guarantee or predict sightings of any kind, but in case we don't encounter any whales or dolphins, we will offer you a return ticket so you can join us again another day (within 2 years) for FREE!
The safety and enjoyment of our passengers is our number one priority and therefore the tour could get cancelled on short notice, depending on the weather and conditions at sea. In this case, we will try our best to contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
Please, read term details at the time of booking
Dress warmly and don't be shy to also put on our warm overalls!
If you are traveling in winter (Nov-Feb), we ask that you rather book our 'Reykjavík Winter Whale & Dolphin Watching' option for more details on our winter operation.
Weather at sea is always colder than on land and therefore we recommend dressing appropriately, by wearing warm clothing and good sturdy shoes. You can also borrow one of our warm blankets and overalls provided on board if needed.
If pick up and drop off have been opted out, please meet us at our red and white ticket office in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík no later than 15 min. prior to tour departure. Details will be provided with the voucher.
