Departing from Reykjavik's historic harbour, a whale watching boat tour provides an exciting opportunity to see nature's giants up-close.
Summer Whale Watching (April - September at various times)
Summer season is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at its best and the minke and humpback whales are at their most abundant. Commonly seen are minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales. During the puffin season (mid-May to mid-August), the boat stops at one of the puffin islands for a closer look at these charismatic birds.
Midnight Whale Watching (15 June - 31 July at 8.30pm)
The midnight sun and the nature of the bay provide a unique experience and can be an ideal end to a busy day or the beginning of a fun night on the town! As whales never fully sleep expect to see minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales.
Winter Whale Watching (October - March at 1pm)
Winter can be an exciting time to view whales and species may include white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises, humpback whales and killer whales. The weather can be unpredictable, so boats may depart from other harbours.
Tours depart daily, weather conditions depending.
