REYKJAVÍK WHALE WATCHING

The summer is a great time to go whale watching from Reykjavík harbour. In the bay resides a large variety of Whales, dolphins and birds that happily enjoy the long days and bright nights of the Icelandic summer. The minke whales are cheerful and in large numbers, along with the quick and quirky white-beaked dolphins, the cute harbour porpoises and the massive humpback whales.
We have more than 15 years experience of guiding and operating whale watching tours in the Faxafói bay, so you can be certain that we love and respect the whales and the wildlife in our native bay. Our trips always bear in mind the wellbeing of the whales and we are also active participants in the protection and research of whales.
All of our whale watching tours start from our ticket office on the Ægisgarður pier at the Old Harbour in Reykjavík. You can purchase tickets there or exchange vouchers if you have booked a prepaid trip. Your whale watching guide will meet you in our Whale Watching Centre, that is located on board a big old fishing vessel that is permanently placed at the pier.
Before or after the tour you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images, videos and will teach you facts about the whales and marine life in Icelandic waters.
The tour’s highlights include seeing the minke whales, humpbacks, harbour porpoises and sea birds in their native homes. If you want to see whales AND puffins, check out the Whales, Puffins & Reykjavík tour.
