Activity description

Set sail through beautiful Skjálfandi bay and watch in amazement as the stunning whales swim in their natural habitat all around you.

It doesn’t get more magical than witnessing a whale glide to the water’s surface. Here in Húsavík, the “Whale Capital” of Iceland, these magnificent creatures are in abundance. Blue whales, Humpback whales, and Mink whales are a few of the many species that can be encountered. This 2-hour whale watching ride will take you as close as you can get! With expert commentary, warm water-resistant overalls, and a speedy RIB boat, you can truly sit back and enjoy.

The tour begins at the Husavik harbor where an expert whale watching guide will provide you with attire and take you into the Skjálfandi bay by boat. With only 12 passengers on board, you can be sure to have an intimate and quiet setting. A highlight will be spotting some puffins on Lundey, also known as Puffin Island. Last but definitely not least, you will see the Tjörnes peninsula, known for its fossil layers with the most ancient one being two million years old!
