Experience the wildlife and nature adventure of a lifetime on our most personal whale watching tour. Our custom made RIB boats allow you to get closer to the whales and puffins than any other tour can offer. These fast, stable and safe boats allow us to cover more area as we search for the wild life, thus increasing your chances of spotting whales, dolphins and bird life.

What to expect? Tours in Reykjavik who start from old harbor area. We start with a visit to the puffins (season from early May to late August) in their natural habitat on the islands of the nearby bay. Next we head out in search of whales. Few things will beach this personal and up close experience of seeing whales and dolphins from our RIB boats. After our whale safari we travel back to Reykjavik, along the shoreline of the city, experiencing a unique view from the sea. Our boats will take you past the Sun Voyager sculpture and the harbor side of Iceland's most famous building, the glittering Harpa Concert Hall.

Travel tip: Combine sightseeing wildlife with some thrill & excitement from Reykjavik neighboring bay area.
