Set in Tröllaskagi (Troll) Peninsula, Dalvik and its waters are a nature-watching paradise. Aboard a comfortable tour boat, we set sail from the harbor into the North Atlantic. We'll be treated to gorgeous views of Eyjafjörður Fjord and Hrísey Island, home to a giant puffin population and forty other bird species.
As we venture out, your guide will share their wildlife knowledge. While there is no map with pinpointed whale migration locations, they will use their latest insights to give you the best chance at a sighting. Dalvík Iceland whale-watching tours have some of the highest success rates in the world, so we are guaranteed some incredible sights.
The marine life most frequently seen on tours are humpback whales ( 93-96% success rate), minke whales (30-35% success rate), dolphins (98% success rate), and porpoises (30-50% success rate). If we are lucky, we might even spot the rare blue whale, the largest animal on earth, if we are lucky!
Please keep in mind that the weather and sea conditions will play a role in how much wildlife we see. Each tour is unique, and you never know what you will experience. We always consider sea conditions and weather when booking tours and try to provide the most favorable situation possible. On the off-chance, if we don't see any whales, you will receive a voucher for another whale-watching tour with us.
The entire tour takes around 2.5 – 3.5 hours.
