What to expect

Would you like to discover the wildlife that occupies the sea around Reykjavik? If so, then, this is the tour for you!

You'll spend three hours at sea with an expert crew and specially trained naturalists as you search for whales, dolphins and other wildlife. Minke and humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises are some of the most frequently seen species and if you're lucky, you might even see killer whales, fin whales and sei whales. They're easiest to spot in the summer which gives us the chance to see them in their natural habitat while they're feeding near the shore but research shows that more and more are staying in the area all year round. One of the other highlights of this tour is the opportunity to see the incredible landscapes and views of the bay. It'll make your experience even more special!
