What you'll do

Enjoy a sea adventure and go looking for whales. You will be joined by a specially trained crew and a certified RIB captain. You will also get the chance to see puffins and dolphins!

Search for the wildlife and explore seas on the adventure of a lifetime on a premium, small group whale watching tour – an essential part of any of our activity holidays in Iceland. The specially engineered RIB boats get you closer and faster to the whales and puffins than bigger boats. These stable and safe boats also allow us to search a bigger area, thus increasing your likelihood of viewing the whales, dolphins and birdlife. 

This fantastic whale watching tour starts from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík. First we ride out to one of three islands close to the harbour and check out the breeding puffins (season 1 May – 20 August). Next we head out further in search of whales and dolphins. Seeing the wildlife as up close as you can from our RIB boats is a once in a lifetime adventure and experience. After exploring the wonders of the sea we sail back to Reykjavík, where we will ride along the city shore line. Along the coast we will have views of the city from a unique angle, Sólfarið viking ship sculpture and mesmerising Harpa Concert Hall. 

Make sure to bring warm clothes and sturdy footwear, its always colder out at sea than on land!
