Tour description

Our custom made RIB boats allow you to get closer the whales and puffins than any boats can offer. These fast, stable and safe boats also allow us to cover more area as we search for the wild life, thus increasing your chances of spotting whales, dolphins and birdlife on this exciting 2 hr. tour.

This great whale watching tour starts from the old harbour of Reykjavík and we first visit the puffins in their natural habitat on the islands in the bay. Next we head out in search of the whales. Few things will beat the experience of seeing the whales and dolphins as up close as you can from our RIB boats. The landscape of the bay takes on a different form when touched by the sun, as it casts a golden glow to the sea and mountains. Travelling back to Reykjavík we will take ride along the city shore line, including a stop at the harbour side of Iceland's most famous building, Harpa Concert Hall.
