Whales & Puffins Tour from Reykjavik

Whale Watching & Puffin Boat Tour from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik

The waters and islands close to Reykjavik are crammed full of amazing wildlife and this combo tour gives you the opportunity to see some of the most impressive and fascinating animals in the entire world, including adorable puffins, whose smiling orange beaks and cute features are quickly making them one of the most popular animals in the world. Alongside, the world’s biggest mammals, the majestic whale, whose intelligence and beauty has enchanted humanity for millennia. Minke whales and humpbacks are some of the most common animals that we see, although we may see sperm whales, the largest predator on the planet, the iconic orca and if we are really lucky, the gargantuan blue whale, the largest creature to have ever existed. It is an unforgettable tour, which will provide an incredible insight into wildlife.

This is a great combination of two separate boat tours from Reykjavík. First, you’ll join a puffin tour on a smaller boat where we’ll take you to one of the three “Puffin Islands” just off the coast of Reykjavík. Each summer, thousands of birds come here to breed. With the small boat, we’ll get as close to the birds as we can in order to observe them in their natural habitat.

After the puffin tour, you’ll have some free time in the harbor before the whale watching tour begins. You can explore the harbor or have something to eat or drink in one of the many cafés in the harbor area. On the whale watching tour, you’ll sail from Faxaflói Bay where you’ll probably see Minke whales, dolphins, and porpoises. You may even see humpbacks or orcas if you are lucky!

Whale Watching

On our exciting whale watching tour, we will take you to Faxaflói bay, where whale sightings are common. It is home to a plethora of different species, with minke whales, humpbacks, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises often seen and other species like sperm whales, orcas, and blue whales also patrolling the waters. Our expert guides will tell you everything you need to know about these majestic giants. Seeing them in the flesh is an experience which will remain with you for the rest of your life, so don’t delay and book this incredible experience today!
