Sail from the Old Harbour, near the city center of Reykjavík. We sail 10-15 nautical miles out to the feeding grounds of Faxaflói Bay, a natural wildlife area. On the way out you can enjoy beautiful views of the mountain Esja and the surrounding area. We spend a total of 3-3.5 hours at sea before returning to the harbour.

Important information

This tour is dependent on weather conditions and sightings of wildlife cannot be guaranteed.

Our experienced captains make the decision to sail based on years of experience while keeping in mind passenger safety and comfort.

We can never guarantee sightings on the tour, but if nothing is seen we offer a FREE ticket to try again - valid indefinitely!

Occasionally due to weather and sea conditions we might sail from other harbours south of Reykjavík. If this happens, we provide transportation for all of our passengers to and from Reykjavík. In this case the tour may be slightly longer due to the extra drive. Our reception team will confirm the details if this happens for your tour.
