Enjoy the unique experience of whale watching in the Faxaflói Bay off the coast of Reykjavik. Your speedboat will allow you to get up close to the incredible humpbacks!
Whale Watching by Speedboat
At the selected time, we'll meet up on AEgisgardur Street in Reykjavik, ready to board a speedboat that will take us to Faxaflói Bay. This area of the North Atlantic is home to one of the most impressive species of marine life, the humpback whale.
During our two hour speedboat cruise, we'll enjoy spotting the humpback whales that inhabit the waters around Iceland. What's more, we should be able to see other creatures that are frequently found in this area of the world, like killer whales and dolphins. Depending on the time of year that you choose to do your trip, you may see more or less animals - each journey is different!
This whale watching tour is carried out aboard a 40 foot (12 metre) speedboat, which allows us to get amazingly close to the animals in complete safety. Our English-speaking guide will detail the most outstanding characteristics of the humpback whales, as well as telling us all about how they live and the importance of protecting these mammals.
If you do this excursion during the summer season, we'll approach Akurey Island, famous for being home to a large population of puffins, who come here to nest at this time of the year. As we bounce back over the waves, we'll enjoy unforgettable views of the coast of Reykjavik. Don't forget your camera!
The tour will come to an end after two hours back at the original departure point.
