Whale Watching Tour: The tour commences at our ticket office by the Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik where you can buy tickets or exchange a voucher for a prepaid trip.
A guide will meet you in the Whale Watching Centre, which is facilitated on board an old fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier. 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, harbour porpoises and humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment.
You can check previous sightings through our online Whale Diary before your tour. Our sighting success on previous tours is 91.40% however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores. The most common cetacean in the area are the minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises and occasionally we see other species including the humpback whales, killer whales/orcas and even fin whales.
If no whales or dolphins are seen on your tour we will offer you a complimentary ticket valid for two years.
Duration: 3-3.5 hours.
