Tour description

Hop on the Amelia Rose yacht and dive into the amazing marine life just off the coast of Reykjavík City. If you’re a nature lover wanting to see Iceland’s majestic whales, dolphins, and porpoises in a cozy, small group, this is your golden ticket. Whale watching on a superyacht? Now that’s next-level!

You’ll set sail from Reykjavík’s Old Harbour and cruise through the scenic Faxaflói Bay, skirting along Reykjavík’s coast. It’s not just about the marine life – you’ll also get fantastic views of the city.

Expect to see minke and humpback whales, dolphins, and porpoises. If you’re lucky, you might even spot some orcas (killer whales) and other fascinating species. The pro team on board knows their stuff and is dedicated to ensuring you have a blast and leave with a big smile!

The Amelia Rose is a beauty, with three panoramic decks that give everyone a great view and awesome photo ops. The partially covered decks offer shelter from the wind and rain, and you can easily walk around to get the best angles. Designed for offshore adventures, the Amelia Rose handles Iceland’s choppy waters like a champ, giving you a smoother ride with less chance of seasickness.

So, don’t wait! Book your spot now and enjoy whale watching in style and comfort on this intimate, small-group tour.
