Experience - Iceland

Whale Watching in Reykjavik


  • Perfect for the whole family!

  • Respectful encounters with sea giants

  • An entertaining learning experience for kids


Go on an open sea adventure aboard one of the biggest and fastest whale-watching boats in Iceland.

The experienced guides and the entire crew will teach you how to interact with these fascinating animals respectfully. It's the perfect adventure for the whole family!



  1. Iceland

This experience revolves around education and interactivity and prioritizes respect for the whales and their natural habitat. This is why the motto of the tour is, "the whales come to us." Such a focus on learning makes this tour a valuable experience for both children and adults alike.

You will go aboard your excursion boat in the Port of Reykjavik. Depending on the season, you can see around 23 different species of whales cavort around Iceland. In Faxafloi Bay alone, it's possible to find 4 different kinds: Minke whales, short-beaked dolphins, porpoises, and even humpback whales. Orcas, fin whales, giant sharks and pilot whales have also been sighted there several times. Which ones will you spot?

Remember to keep your camera ready. At any moment, you might miss a fin or even a colossal body flying into the air.

Even if no whale or dolphin shows up at the moment, the experts on board will teach you all you need to know about the underwater world.

Finally, don't forget to look at the sky! Iceland has a fascinating birdlife, and you will likely spot several puffins, seagulls, and swallows looking for fish - depending on the season, of course.
