What to expect

During the summer months, Iceland has nearly 24 hours of daylight, which allows us to operate the fantastic Midnight Sun whale watching the tour. There's something extra-special about seeing whales in the evening, surrounded by the glow from an evening sun reflecting off the waters of Faxaflói Bay. You set sail at 9:00 pm and head back just before midnight, giving you plenty of time to search for whales with one of our expert guides. The most common species we see on our tours are humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises.
