Why take this tour?
Though Iceland may be best known for the raw beauty of its landscape, it's also a go-to whale watching destination for international visitors. Experience these majestic creatures in the wild on this whale watching cruise on Faxaflói Bay. Just hop in your rigid inflatable boat as your guide skims you through Reykjavik Old Harbour, and helps you spot local species—like dolphins and porpoises—and migrating species, like the elusive and beautiful minke and humpback whales.

Whale Safari is Reykjavik's premier small groups whale watching & wildlife tour operator. Our specially made RIB boats are made to get close to the whales, dolphins and puffins of the Faxafloi Bay. We only seat 12 passengers per boat, and each boat has a expert whale watching guide and captain on board. This is the ideal way to come in contact with nature with this intimate experience. Another thing is that all our small group tours are real ocean safaris, as we search for the whales we also visit the puffins when they are in season and do a sightseeing tour of Reykjavik from the sea front. Oh! And all of this in less then two hours. Our ticket office and service center is located in the Old Harbor in downtown Reykjavik and is open year round from 8:00-21:00. Tours are operated up to 8 times a day, everyday from the 15th of April to the 30th of September.
