Description:

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. This great whale watching tour starts from the old harbor of Reykjavik but during the puffin season we firstly visit the puffins 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 whales safari we travel back to Reykjavik. Here we will sail along the shoreline of the city, experiencing a unique view from the sea (perfect for photos). 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.

The most fun one: rebook your tour at a later date with out any additional costs. The next one: if our bigger sightseeing ships are sailing (they sail in more wind then the RIB boats) we can book you there and refund you the difference. Or finally...a full refund. :)
