Húsavík Adventures proudly presents: Midnight Sun Whale Watching!
Our most glorious and stunning product is without a doubt whale wathcing tour on our brilliant RIB boats in the amazing Midnight Sun. The tours are available from 31st May until 31st July. That’s the time of the year when the daylight is about 24 hours in Iceland! In the prime conditions (which happens a lot of times) the sea goes completely still while the sun drops down in the horizon.
And the whales? Not asleep at all! Our previous guests have enjoyed plenty of whale activity in the bay with a minimal traffic from other boats. In fact, Midnight Sun Whale Watching is one of the best kept secret in the Húsavík tourism as the conditions are very often ideal for our travellers.
So what are you waiting for? BOOK NOW in the booking engine here on the right. In order to book Midnight Sun Whale Watching, simply choose any date from 31st May – 31st July and pick the latest departure.

Our RIB boats (Rigid Inflatable Boats) are among the fastest RIB boats available in Iceland. They were specially designed to get you as close as possible to the whales, dolphins and puffins here in Husavik. Their speed allows us to cover longer distances in search of the whales, which increases your chances of meeting some of the biggest animals in the world. Despite the speed and power of our RIB boats, their noise and impact is minimal. Last summer we had a 100% success of seeing whales on Skjalfandi bay.
We have two RIB boats that seat 12 passengers per boat, each with an expert whale watching guide and captain on board. Our captains have many years of experience sailing on Skjalfandi bay. We focus on small group tours, which eliminates competition for the best view on board. Our reputation for a passenger-centered approach precedes us, assuring you with the best possible experience and utmost safety on board.
International regulations state that RIB boats are allowed to have 12 passengers on board each boat, so our boats were specially designed to meet those regulations. We hold the safety of our passengers to the highest of standards, and take every precaution to ensure it. We therefore refrain from taking more than 12 passengers at a time.
Safety on board
Our RIB boats, Kría and Kjói, are 12 meter long custom made Marina RIB boats. They were originally designed for the Coast Guard and are therefore very stable and safe in all types of weather. Both of our RIBs are powered by two 315 HP diesel engines and can get up to the speed of 45 sea-miles per hour (81 km/hr). RIB boats are used for many purposes all around the world, such as by the Coast Guard, Navy and the Police because of their speed, safety and flexibility on the high seas.
International regulations state that RIB boats are allowed to have 12 passengers on board each boat, so our boats were specially designed to meet those regulations. Our RIBs have all the necessary equipment on board. This includes: rescue boats, lifebuoys, rescue throwing line, flares, compasses, first aid kits, fire extinguishers, tool kits, navigation lights, radios, GPS devices, anchors and life jackets for all on board. Our life jackets have automatic gas inflation, so the life jackets inflate automatically should you enter the water wearing one.
Our boats Kjói and Kría are available for a private rent. Enjoy a relaxing time in the ever so lovely Skjálfandi Bay, surrounded by big whales, several birds and a stunning nature. Our great crew will take good care of you!
