Observe graceful giants in their natural habitat on a relaxing whale watching cruise.
You’ll have a whale of a good time! The Atlantic Ocean surrounding Iceland is abundant in marine life and whale watching is a rewarding wildlife experience from the sea. Success rates of seeing the world’s largest mammals in their natural habitat are much greater than 95%.
The most common whales spotted are the friendly minke whales but also blue whales, humpback whales, sei and fin whales, killer whales and of course a number of dolphins including white beaks and harbor porpoises.
Tours, which last from a few hours to most of the day, depart from several locations in Iceland such as Reykjavik, Breiddalsvik in the East, Olafsvik in the West, and the Westman Islands in the South.
The most popular spot for whale watching is from Husavik in the North of the country, which is regarded by many as the ’Whale Watching Capital of Europe.’ Cruises are made on a quiet, old-fashioned oak boat and on shore there is an exhibition center dedicated to the many species of whales that sport in the bay.
