Iceland's biggest mammals

The ocean around Iceland is home to some the most magnificent creatures on Earth. This tour will give you the possibility of seeing whales in their natural habitat as well as the rich and thriving birdlife Iceland has to offer. You might see some spectacular behavioural displays from breaching humpbacks to spinning dolphins and graceful minke whales. Within the whale watching area is a diverse seabird population, including the hard diving gannets and clumsy, yet adorable looking puffins (1 May – 15 Aug).

These tours are educational and interactive. On each tour passengers get to see and feel whale teeth and bones, get a chance to see specimens straight from the ocean and take part in Special Tours whale research!

Focus is on comfort and personal service while making sure the environment is protected and respected in every way possible. You will also find skilled & friendly crew on board and the guides are very experienced.

Because of nature‘s unpredictability, it is impossible to guarantee a sighting.
