Whale Watching Safari

Price from $185.00 per person

Take part in an adventure at sea with an unforgettable trip into the world of whales and sea birds.

Duration of tour: 4 hours

The Tour

Each year continues to surprise us with the wildlife it offers. Herring and capelin being the main prey available attracting humpback whales, killer whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbour porpoises to our shores. The winter low lying sun is also something not to be missed, as it casts a warm glow over the white-capped mountains and to breathe in the winters fresh, crisp air is just incredible. The weather and thus sea conditions can be very challenging during the winter months; we adapt by moving our vessels to harbours of more sheltered areas situated around the Reykjanes peninsula and transport our passengers there free of charge from our base in the Old harbour. Our experience and flexibility allow for a more comfortable and reliable winter whale watching adventure. As the weather in Iceland can be quite unpredictable, we sometimes move our boats to different locations for a more pleasant cruise. Going from other harbours means that we need to take a coach that can be anywhere from 20-60 minutes one way.

Includes:
  • Whale watching tour by boat
  • Wi-Fi on-board the boat
  • Access to the Visitor Centre / Whale Exhibition
