Information about the Wonderful Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavík in Iceland:

The excursions for the whale watching sightings set sail from the old port of Reykjavík, located in the center of the Icelandic capital. Whales, possible one of the most extraordinary creatures in nature, can be seen quite easily in this part of the ocean.

During this tour of 2.5 - 3.5 hours (depending on the time of year), you and your companions, will be on the look out for minke whales, white-nosed dolphins, small porpoises and even the great humpback whales. In these sightseeing expeditions you will always be accompanied by a friendly and professional guide. While part of the fun is standing at the edge of the boat and feeling the chilly, salty air pass through your hair, all passengers do have the option to sit inside the cabin of the boat as there is one seat guaranteed per passenger. There is additional seating outside on the deck for those brave souls who want to be just a bit closer to the action.

Reserve your spot for a wonderful whale watching tour in Iceland, leaving from Reykjavík, in advance and enjoy seeing these unique mammals in their natural habitat. The boats used in our tours offer the guests a comfortable, safe and convenience environment in which to pass the time. There is a cafeteria within the main cabin of the boat where you can buy refreshments, hot dogs and other yummy snacks to keep you warm and energized during the excursion.
