The animals most often seen on our boat tours are humpback whales, minke whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Whale watching cruises in Iceland have wonderful success rates so get ready to snap some awesome photos!
Please note that weather and sea conditions can affect how much wildlife we see. To provide you with the best experience possible, we always check the forecast for favorable conditions when creating bookings. Every whale watching tour is unique, so you never know what you might witness out at sea!
For your comfort, our boats are built with giant windows so you can watch the whales from indoors. If you want to go out on deck, we offer special suits to keep you cozy. We still advise you to wear warm clothes, hats, scarves, and gloves even on warm days, as the sea air can get cold. Enjoy the scenery with a treat from our onboard café, which serves hot drinks and soups. Our whale watching from Reykjavik harbour is the perfect day trip for every Iceland itinerary!
The entire tour takes around 2.5 – 3.5 hours.
