It is simply magical to watch whales at the magnificent Skjálfandi Bay. Húsavík is on Iceland’s north coast, so this tour is a great add on to your road trip in North Iceland. Get on board with the great 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 as well. You will see the most common whales and dolphins up and close on this tour. During your 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 Húsavík whale watching tour will take approximately 3 hours.
