Tour description

Here is your chance to see the incredible Eyjafjord Humpbacks in their natural habitat on this 3 hr. cruise into the longest  glacial fjord in Iceland. The warmth of the summer sun brings vibrant life and plentitude of food to the fjord and following it, in a feeding frenzy, come the larger-than-life Humpbacks. Our specially trained whale watching guides are experts at spotting them and telling you all about their behaviour, any question you have, we promise you an answer. 

Our ship is the only high speed, specially modified, whale watching ship in Iceland. Capable of carrying 200 persons with spectacular views from our “cinema styled” viewing platforms. Its speed guarantees availability of whale watching tours from Akureyri, where ever the whales might be located in the deepest fjord in Iceland. With ample indoor and outdoor seating, bar and cafeteria, you can be sure that the ride is comfortable and pleasant even at speed. 

Keep in mind

Our sightings success in summer is an amazing 100%, however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores. 

If no whales or dolphins are encountered on your tour we will offer you a complimentary ticket valid for 2 years on our Classic Whale Watching tour, in either Reykjavik or Akureyri.

Most common species in the fjord are humpback whales, but other species such as dolphins, porpoises, minke whales and even orcas can be found in our waters.

The tour is weather dependent.

  • great mountain views on either side of the fjord
