Tour Description

Your whale-watching Reykjavik adventure begins at the old harbor, just minutes away from the city center! A classic whale watching tour is on a big and sturdy boat called Andrea, offered all year round from Reykjavik. The duration of this tour is roughly 3 – 3,5 hours.

On this  Classic Whale Watching tour from Reykjavik, you will be able to experience some of Iceland’s rich and thriving bird life, as well as visit our large variety of sea-life, including minke whales, humpback whales, harbour porpoises and white-beaked dolphins among other whale species. Our focus is on comfort, unique experiences and personal service while making sure the environment is protected and respected in every way possible.

Enjoy a sail out in one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. This big and sturdy whale watching boat called Andrea provides you with extra comfort, fantastic interior and seating areas, large outside viewing decks, a safe family-friendly environment and a café & souvenir shop on-board.

Your expert guides and friendly crew will welcome you aboard, share with you interesting information about different kinds of whales and seabirds you may expect to see on your tour and will teach you how to spot whales out in the bay. With an on-board display of whale teeth, bones, baleen, plankton nets and a microscope, this tour truly is a hands-on floating Whale Watching classroom with educational & interactive focus.
