Whales are beautiful animals and one of nature’s most extraordinary sights. This cruise will take about 3 hours. The abundant marine life and the crew's expertise has ensured we have sightings on over 90% of our tours.

Our 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 harbours 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.
