What to expect

Join the experienced crew of Special Tours for a whale watching adventure you won't forget! This tour typically sails on Andrea, one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland known for her stability and comfort.

The Andrea gives extra comfort, with great inside and outside viewing decks. The Andrea is very family-friendly with an educational and interactive focus where their passengers get to see and feel whale teeth and bones and see specimens from the ocean that are shown to them on an on-board screen using special microscopes.

The most common whales spotted include Minke Whales, White-Beaked Dolphins, Harbor Porpoises and even the majestic Humpback Whales.
