What to expect

The summer is a great time to go whale watching from Reykjavík harbor. The bay resides a large variety of Whales, dolphins, and birds that happily enjoy the long days and bright nights of the Icelandic summer. The minke whales are cheerful and in large numbers, along with the quick and quirky white-beaked dolphins, the cute harbor porpoises and the massive humpback whales.

The tour operator has more than 15 years experience of in guiding and operating whale watching tours in the Faxafói bay, so you can be certain that they love and respect the whales and the wildlife in the native bay. The trips always bear in mind the wellbeing of the whales and they are also active participants in the protection and research of whales.
