Search for the largest mammal in the world
On the Reykjavík Whale Watching tour you will board a ship and brave the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. You will search for whales, and other wildlife in its natural habitat. In the bay around Reykjavík a large variety of Whales, dolphins and birds can be found. The minke whales are playful and in large numbers, along with the quick and quirky white-beaked dolphins, the cute harbour porpoises and the huge humpback whales.
We have more than 15 years experience of guiding and operating whale watching tours in the Faxafói bay, so you can be certain that we love and respect the whales and other wildlife in our native bay. Our trips always bear in mind the wellbeing of the whales and we are also active participants in the protection and research of whales.
All of our whalewatching tours start from our ticket office on the Ægisgarður pier at the Old Harbour in Reykjavík. You can purchase tickets there or exchange vouchers if you have booked a prepaid trip. Your whale watching guide will meet you in our Whale Watching Centre located on board an old fishing vessel that is permanently moored at the pier.
Before or after the tour you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images and videos providing lots of interesting facts about the whales and marine life in Icelandic waters.
The tour’s highlights include seeing minke whales, humpbacks, harbour porpoises and sea birds in their native habitat. If you want to see whales AND puffins, check out the Whales, Puffins & Reykjavík tour.
