The first stop on this tour will be to an island that is close to the harbour where you'll get to see puffins in their natural habitat. Then you'll head out further to begin the search for whales and dolphins before returning to Reykjavík and admiring the city views from the water. You'll get a whole new perspective of the Sólfarið viking ship sculpture and mesmerising Harpa Concert Hall.
