What to Expect

See giant mammals in their natural environment during 3-hour long boat tour. On board you will find several outdoor viewing platforms, an indoor saloon with large wide-range windows, a cafeteria where you can buy light refreshments, toilet facilities and a cloak room where you can borrow our blankets and overalls for the duration of the tour.

You can stay outside in the fresh air but you are also welcome to settle inside the heated lounge and observe the views from within. Excellent naturalists will give you a commentary throughout and explain the sights and encounters as we go and the crew is happy to answer any questions you may have along the way!

The most common species encountered on tours from Reykjavík are the minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises.

Occasionally you see other species such as killer whales, fin whales, sei whales and long-finned pilot whales, although they are not as common.
