About Tour

The marine life of Iceland is something to be explored. Yes, when in Iceland, you simply cannot miss watching whales in their natural habitat. It is one of the best experiences indeed! Go for the whale watching tour in Húsavík, Iceland to experience and see the whales closely. 

The Incredible Whale Watching Experience in Húsavík

How beautiful is it to watch whales at the magnificent Skjálfandi Bay, Húsavík on a sunny day? Húsavík is on Iceland’s north coast, on the Skjálfandi bay shore. Get on board with the amazing crew to watch the whales in the traditional and well-known areas of Skjálfandi Bay. You will not only get to see the whales swim around their natural habitat, you will get to see the dolphins, and birds. You cannot predict how many beautiful species you get to witness during the trip but, of course, you will see the beautiful and most common whales and dolphins up and close. During your trip to Skjálfandi Bay on the Húsavík whale watching tour, you will see minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, humpback whales, porpoises; and if you visit during the beginning of summer, you will also get to see the blue whales and fin whales.

Icelandic weather is completely unpredictable, and since we are sailing on The Atlantic Ocean, you need to come prepared for it. There can be a rapid change in the weather so we will bring warm overalls and raincoats if needed. However, it is recommended to wear something warm under the overalls to protect you from the chilly weather and rain. The complete tour will take approximately 3 hours to watch the whales at Húsavík.
