We are extremely excited for the 2019 season and bookings for our whale watching tours are now available.
Get your warm clothes and get ready down at Husavik harbour. We offer a 2-hour whale watching tour on a speedy RIB boat from the harbor of Húsavík – The Whale Capital of Iceland. Included is an expert whale watching guide, a captain on board, warm water resistant overall suit and a life vest.
Big Whales & Puffins
The tour begins with by heading in to the beautiful Skjálfandi bay. There are many whale species that are known to be accommodated in Skjálfandi bay, for an example the Blue whale, the Humpback whale and the Minke whale. The speedy RIB boats make it more likely to have a close encounter with the giants, being able to drive huge amount of miles in the trip. Also with only 12 passengers or fewer on board, competition for the best view on board is eliminated.
Among places we’ll see is Lundey (Puffin Island), known for its great amount of the popular bird. Passengers will also see the Tjörnes peninsula, known for its fossil layers with the most ancient one being two millions years old!
*Puffin season is ca. 1st May-20th August. Outside that time of the year our tours are Big Whales exclusive!
Midnight Sun Whale Watching
Our most glorious and stunning product is without a doubt whale watching tour on our brilliant RIB boats in the amazing Midnight Sun. The tours are available from 1st June 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 traveler.
