The Reykjavik Whale watching tour starts when a guide meets you in the Whale Watching Centre, which is located in Ægisgarður in the old harbor area in Reykjavik’s city center. Before or after the tour you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images, videos, and facts about the whales and marine life.
Summer season is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at its highest peak. This is the time when the minke whales are at their most abundant, along with the white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises, and humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment.
Please note that for your enjoyment and pleasure, this tour is subject to weather, conditions, and visibility. Therefore the tour could get canceled on short notice. In this case, we will contact you with as much notice as possible with the information provided in the booking process.
Reykjavik Whale Watching tours are focused mainly on the southern part of Faxaflói, just off Reykjavík. Each day we scan the area for signs of whales as we never know for sure where we might find them. Sometimes we have to go far while at other times the whales are quite close to shore.In rare occasions, we head to other areas and/or depart from nearby harbors e.g. Hafnarfjörður, Keflavík, Sandgerðir or Grindavík. This is the case when weather conditions or chances of seeing the whales are greater there than in our normal area.
