Tour description

Enjoy 3 hrs. at sea with our expert crew and specially trained naturalists in search for the whales and wildlife of Reykjavík. The city view and landscape of the bay is also not to be missed and adds that something special to the experience.

The mystical midnight sun often casts a beautiful orange and pink glow to the mountains surrounding the bay and together with the wildlife it provides quite a unique experience. To make the tour even more enjoyable, we often shut off the boat engines to enjoy the soothing sound of the water and the whales and the birds to the fullest. With the added feature of mellow music played on the way back to port, the tour is ideal for some romance or as a start of a night out in the city. If you're in the mood for some drinks, have a look at our onboard bar menu - we recommend the 'Whale Punch'!

Keep in mind

This is a wildlife excursion and as such we can never guarantee or predict sightings of any kind, but in case we don't encounter any whales or dolphins, we will offer you a return ticket so you can join us again another day (within 2 years) for FREE! 

 

We reserve the right to alter routes and itineraries by sometimes sailing from other harbours, which could result in a slightly longer tour. If you are on a tight schedule we suggest you consult with our sales representatives.

  

Weather at sea is always colder than on land and therefore we recommend dressing appropriately, by wearing warm clothing and good sturdy shoes. You can also borrow one of our warm blankets and overalls provided on board if needed. For optimal viewing and a more enjoyable cruise this tour is weather dependent. 

We abide by a code of conduct for responsible whale watching, thus each encounter is on the animal's terms and distance may be kept to minimise disturbance.

  • great landscape views in the midnight sun
