Product Description

Whale Watching Iceland

You will sail out on one of the largest whale watching ships in Iceland providing extra comfort, fantastic inside and outside viewing areas and a safe family-friendly environment. Inside there is a comfortable seating area with big windows for great viewing on both floors. You can also stay outside on our extra large viewing decks where everyone can find a spot by the railing and enjoy the fantastic panoramic bird’s-eye-view to capture the fantastic scenery around.

The tour has an “educational & interactive” focus where the passengers get to see and feel whale teeth and bones, there are specimens from the ocean and you can see them on an on-board screen using special microscopes.

“Friendly crew who have thought of everything”

m_neirynck Hong Kong

We went on a 9am tour, and it was truly wonderful. We saw one humpback whale who followed the boat for a good 30 minutes, a pod of dolphins who put on a real show for us, and a few other whales along the way. The enthusiasm and friendliness of the crew are what made the tour so special. They thought of everything, from windbreaker boiler suits to sea sickness tablets, even going so far as setting off from a different location to have the best chance of seeing whales (the transfer to the new departure location was at no extra cost). Above all, the tour guide really let his passion for and knowledge of whales shine through. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

“Wonderful experience!”

mamaconnoisseur Indianapolis, Indiana

My son and I saw lots of whales...what a great experience! I can't emphasize how important it is to wear the free bodysuit/ overalls they offer. Without this protection against the wind, we would have lasted only a few minutes. Excellent crew and very prompt driver.

“More than we hoped”

Adana, Turkey

We spent over an hour looking at many whales of 3 species! The tour was just over 3 hrs and we were a little worried at first but the whales put on a show and we saw so many that people stopped moving from one side of the boat to the other to look.
