Iceland is one of the best places on earth to go on a whale watching tour. These magnificent creatures spend their days around the Icelandic shore as it’s full of fish for them to feast on. 

During a whale watching tour you can see a variety of animals. Species include Minke whales and Humpback whales as well as White Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises.

You can see also see a wide variety of other aquatic species including all sorts of bird including puffins during the summer. A great addition is the sailing out like Icelandic fishermen and vikings, experiencing the beautiful scenery around the coast of Iceland.


We sail out from the old harbour located in downtown Reykjavik. Once we exit the harbour we set sail towards the Faxaflói bay.

We immediately start our search for whales and dolphins using specialised equipment and deep sea radars.

Once the animals are found we try to get as close to them as we can in order to get the best view and photo opportunities

We then sail back to harbour enjoying the views of the mountains and city skyline.
