Express Whales on RIB Boat from Akureyri

Fast Paced and Personal Whale Safari

Express Whales on RIB Boat from Akureyri offers thrills and fins

Join the 2-Hour Express Whales on RIB Boat from Akureyri, operated by Whale Watching Akureyri. The tour starts from the floating pier at Hof Cultural Centre in Akureyri. Experience and get close to the incredible humpback whales of the Eyjafjord, starting from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri town. With only 12 passengers on each boat, we can guarantee an adventure of a lifetime on an intimate whale-watching tour. Our specially made RIB boats allow you to get closer to the whales and wildlife than any other boat can offer. The RIBs are fast and small boats that will also get you quicker to the whales and cover a bigger area as we search for the wildlife. This means a bigger chance of spotting whales, dolphins, and bird life without disturbing them in their natural habitat.
If you have a passion for nature and a love for adventure, this is the tour for you.
