Whale Watching

Whale watching tours are operated from the old harbour in Reykjavik. The whales most frequently seen on tours are the Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins and Porpoises other speces are sometimes spotted.

Special suits are offered on board for comfort and warmth, but we advise you to wear your warmest clothes including hats, scarves, gloves etc. as it can get very cold, even on the warmest days.
Hot drinks and light refreshments are available in the on-board café.  

If you are cold you can sit inside the boat, where you can watch the whales outside from large windows.

Excellent guides will tell you about your trip and describe what you can see and where to look, together with an introduction and safety guide.  They will tell you about the seabirds and nature in the Faxofloi bay.  How much you see depends on the sea conditions and season, but qualified guides are happy to try to answer all your questions.

Although they rarely have to go further than 15 nautical miles from the harbour, no two whale watching trips are the same.  Please be aware of the need to be flexible and organize your trip taking sea conditions, weather and seasons into account.

Each trip takes about 2,5 - 3,5 hours; Picking up from hotels and guesthouses, warm suites on board the boats and guidance. Departure times winter 1300 hours   summer   1300  and 1700 hours    available everyday.
