Sail the coast of Iceland, and marvel at the whales of the North Atlantic in their natural habitat. You'll get to see these impressive mammals up close in a unique experience.
The tour meets in Reykjavik first thing in the morning, and hits the road on the way to the port, beginning our cruise on the Faxaflói bay. As soon as we hit the Atlantic, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the island from the boat.
During the tour, you'll have the opportunity to see humpback whales in their natural habitat. The coasts of the island are regularly visited by these and other whales, and depending on the time of year and the sea conditions, we may also see dolphins or even orcas.
As we sail next to these majestic beasts, we'll learn about the behaviour and biology of these protected species, and the importance of conserving the biodiversity of the ocean. And after an unforgettable day immersed in the wildlife of the Atlantic ocean, we'll begin the cruise back to the Reykjavik port.
