Activity description

Treat yourself to a whale watching experience of a lifetime with this exciting speedboat ride on Skjálfandi Bay.

Welcome to Húsavík, Iceland’s whale capital! There is no better place to cruise over the waves and search for these gentle giants. Sheltered by the stunning mountains of Vík, Skjálfandi Bay has long been one of the most successful areas to watch whales in their natural habitat. This unique tour will take you farther into the bay thanks to a specialized RIB speedboat. The most common species found in this area include harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, humpback whales, and blue whales.

What’s more? The tour will include a visit to Puffin Island where you can experience thousands of puffins, known as the Clowns of the Ocean. All you need to do is meet your fully qualified and highly experienced guide at the meeting point near Húsavík Port. Your guide will give you a brief rundown of the activity then it’s time to hit the waters!
