While out in the bay looking at the whales, you might not fully understand how amazingly big these animals are.
This combo tour admission gives you the opportunity to experience the different whales found around Iceland from both land and sea. So admission to the Whales of Iceland is included in your Whale Watching ticket.
Before or after your boat tour we recommend visiting the Whales of Iceland Exhibition on the other side of Reykjavik’s Old Harbour area. The Whales of Iceland Exhibition showcases 23 life-size whale models with a lot of in-depth information, interactive experiences, and underwater footage of whales shown on an 8-meter screen. Part of the exhibition focuses on conservation where the multiple threats (and their solutions) that whales face today are showcased. The exhibition really gives you a feeling of how small we are compared to the ocean wildlife.
On the Whale Watching tour, you will check-in at the Special Tours Ticket Office in Reykjavik’s Old Harbour before you sail out to Faxaflói Bay. Here we will search for the most common whales in the area, such as humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises.
During the tour, we observe their behavior in the wild while learning more about them from one of your expert guides. If there are no sightings on our tours you are entitled to a ticket to try again for free.
