Whales & Puffins

The combo consists of two tours, first you will go on the puffin tour on a smaller boat where we take you to one of the three islands just off Reykjavík where each year thousands of birds come to breed. After the puffin tour you have some free time in the harbour or city centre before the whale watching tour starts. On the whale watching we sail off into Faxaflói bay where we are likely to see Minke whales, dolphins and porpoises (maybe even Humpbacks or Orcas if we are lucky!).
Timings and tours are as follows:
     09:30 Puffins & 13:00 Whales
     12:00 Puffins & 14:00 Whales
     15:00 Puffins & 17:00 Whales
Make sure to check our current schedule for available spots on your preferred date!
Puffin watching is a fun and easy adventure on a boat. Depending on the tides and conditions on the islands our captains will take you to either Akurey, Engey or Lundey. The islands are well known for their plentiful birdlife and in addition to puffins you have the opportunity to view other birds such as eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots and cormorants.The island’s shores are rocky but our captains know the best spots to get close to the puffins in their natural habitat. If the weather is right we might even turn off the engines so that you can enjoy the nature better and listen to the bird’s calls. During the tour the crew will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and the surroundings. The puffin tour is roughly 1 hour.
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 and harbour porpoises, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment. The whale watching tour lasts around 3 hours overall.
