Reykjavík: Whales & Puffins on RIB Boats

2 Hour whale & bird watching tour starting from Reykjavik Old Harbour

Reykjavík: Whales & Puffins on RIB Boats is a real adventure tour. Experience the wildlife and nature adventure of a lifetime on our most personal whale watching tour. Our custom made RIB boats allow you to get closer the whales and puffins than any boats can offer. These fast, stable and safe boats also allow us to cover more area as we search for the wild life, thus increasing your chances of spotting whales, dolphins and birdlife.

This great whale watching tour starts from the old harbour of Reykjavík and we first visit the puffins in their natural habitat on the islands in the bay. Next we head out in search of the whales. Few things will beat the experience of seeing the whales and dolphins as up close as you can from our RIB boats. After our whale safari we travel back to Reykjavík, where we will take ride along the cities shore line, viewing it from the sea. Including a stop at the harbour side of Iceland´s most famous building, the glittering Harpa Concert Hall.
