Reykjavík Whale Watching

An Unforgettable Experience for All

 Reykjavík Whale Watching Tour is a classic activity for the whole family. Your whale watching adventure begins at Reykjavik´s Old Harbour, just minutes away from the city centre! Our boats offer great comfort, a fantastic interior, large outside viewing decks and a safe family environment. The friendly guides, along with the captain and crew, point out where to spot the whales and give interesting information about the different kinds of whales and seabirds you can expect to see.

We offer two types of whale watching tours, the Express tour on the boat Rósin and the educational and interactive tour on the boat Andrea.

Whales are beautiful animals and one of nature’s most extraordinary sights. Our whale watching tours are operated from the old harbour and because of our crew’s expertise and the abundant marine life, we have spotted whales on over 90% of our tours. The most common whales spotted include Minke Whales, White-Beaked Dolphins, Harbor Porpoises and even the majestic Humpback Whales. Other species are sometimes spotted.
