Tour description

Experience and get close to the incredible humpback whales of the Eyjafjord, starting from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri on this thrilling 2 hr. tour. With only 12 passengers on each boat we can guarantee an adventure of a lifetime on an intimate whale watching tour. 

Our specially made RIB boats allow you to get closer to the whales and wildlife than any other boat can offer. The RIBs are fast and small boats that will also get you quicker to the whales and cover a bigger area as we search for the wild life. This means a bigger chance of spotting whales, dolphins and bird life with out disturbing them in their natural habitat.

If you have a passion for nature and love for adventure, this is the tour for you! 

Keep in mind

Sighting success in summer 2016, 2017 and 2018 was 100%, however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores.

Most common species are Humpback whales. If no whales or dolphins are seen on your tour we will offer you a complimentary ticket valid for two years on our Classic Whale Watching tour, in either Reykjavík or Akureyri.

Please make sure to arrive 30 min. prior to departure for this tour as we need to give you a quick safety briefing and find you the proper safety gear to wear during the tour.

Note that you might need to sign a waiver before undertaking the trip.
