Payment & Reservation

Our ticket office can be found in the Whale Watching Centre shared with North Sailing just across the street from the unique Húsavík church. You really can’t miss it! When you have checked in at the ticket office you will be directed to Húsavík Adventures’s dressing room.

Reservations that are cancelled more than 24 hours before departure will be fully refunded. Cancellations less than 24 hours before departure will be charged half price.  For cancellations and changes of reservations contact Húsavík Adventures via email: whales@husavikadventures.is
All tours are dependent on the nature.  Weather and sea conditions are different every day, therefore we reserve the right to change or cancel scheduled departures,  this is for your safety as a passenger. If the weather causes that we need to cancel or change scheduled departure all customers receive a full refund or can book another trip depending on availability.
All Whale Watching trips are dependent on the wild nature of Skjálfandi Bay. The nature is unpredictable. The chances of seeing whales are overwhelming with up to 99% rate of seeing whales during trips over the last years.  If no whales (dolphins included) are seen on the tour, passengers are welcome to join another Húsavík Adventures tour free of charge, depending on availability. We do not refund tickets if no whales and/or dolphins are seen on the tour.

During high season we highly recommend booking in advance, as we only have 12 seats in each boat. It is possible to book your tour online on this website.

Besides the Icelandic Krona, we accept US dollars and Euros. Price will be calculated according to our price in ISK and the current currency exchange rate.

Whale Watching

Whales can be spotted equally throughout the day. Although every tour is different from the other, there’s equal chance for a great show at any given hour.

How about the whales behavior? 

It ain’t so different between separate parts of the day. After all they spend their time mostly feeding.

In the rare cases of no whale sightings, passengers get a “Return ticket”. That means that customers of the tour can return in the future (even the next tour depending on availability) for a free tour. We don’t refund tickets because of no whale sightings.

You can either choose to join us in a tour later or get a full refund.

No. We’re dealing with wild nature and it is unpredictable. However we’ve got whale sightings in 99% of our tours for the recent years so we can be pretty optimistic each and every time we leave the harbor.

We provide warm water resistant overall suit and a life vest before going on board. It can be pretty cold in the bay, so wearing warm clothes underneath the suit is necessary. Hats, gloves and good shoes should also be worn.
