After what seems like an eternity of wait… our whale watching tours from Húsavík are now available for booking for the 2021 season! Drum rolls please!!
So…get those warm clothes out, pack them up and make your way to us. Get ready to enjoy a unique experience with Húsavík Adventures!
We offer a 2-hour whale watching tour from Húsavík, known as The Whale Capital of Iceland, on a speedy RIB.
What’s on the tour, you ask? Our amazing caption, whale watching tour guide expert, warm water resistant overall suit, a life vest, and lots and lots of fun.
Our tour begins by heading into the beautiful Skjálfandi bay. There are varied whale species that are known to be accommodated in this area, for example the Humpback whale, the Minke whale, the White-beaked dolphins and sometimes even Blue whales and Killer whales!
Our first pit stop will be in Lundey, also known as the Puffin Island in English. It is a great spot to enjoy bird watching Iceland’s popular ones.
We will then head to Tjörnes peninsula, known for its fossil layers with the most ancient one being two million years old!
Why a RIB boat for a whale watching tour?
The speedy RIB boats can pull off maximum miles in the trip which makes it more likely to have a closer encounter with the whales. And with a capacity of just 12 passengers on board, we’ve tried to make it an exclusive and elusive experience for our tourers to enjoy the breathtaking views and of course, our beloved giants from every angle.
*Please note that the Puffin season is ca. 1st May-20th August. Outside that time of the year our tours are Big Whales exclusive!
Our most prized possession is the Midnight Sun Whale Watching tour! Hop on our sleek RIB Boats and sail away into the midnight sun to meet the whales.
These tours are available from 1st June until 31st July. That’s the time of the year when the daylight is almost for 24 hours in Iceland! In the most ideal conditions (which happens often) the sea goes completely still while the sun drops down in the horizon.
And what about the whales? Not asleep at all!
Through the years, our guests have enjoyed numerous whale activities in the bay with minimal traffic from other boats. In fact, the Midnight Sun Whale Watching tour from Húsavík is one of the best kept secrets from the town, as the conditions are very often ideal for our travelers.
So, what are you waiting for? Book your tour HERE !
See you soon!
