Whale watching from Reykjavik

Amazing Whales not so far from Reykjavik


When you visit Iceland you will explore amazing landscapes and natural wonders, both on the island and in the surrounding waters and harbors.

Ever Wondered how a Whale looks up close?


We have the perfect Iceland Tours for this experience. Your whale watching Reykjavik adventure begins at Reykjavik´s Old Harbor, just minutes away from the city center! Our boats offer great comfort, a fantastic interior, large outside viewing decks and a safe family environment. The friendly guides, along with the captain and crew, point out where to spot the whales and give interesting information about the different kinds of whales and seabirds you can expect to see.

We operate the largest AND the fastest Whale Watching passenger boats in Iceland. We proudly follow the Ice Whale code of conduct to respect and protect the nature of Iceland.


We have two boats:

  • Andrea (3-3.5 hours) departs at 09:00, 13:00, 17:00
  • All aboard the biggest whale watching boat in Iceland! Fantastic inside and outside areas with plenty of space for everyone and a café & souvenir shop on board! This tour has an educational and interactive focus, where our passengers get to see and feel objects relating to our tours, such as baleen plates, whale teeth and whale bones.Our guides also take specimens from the ocean on each tour and show them to our passengers on an on-board screen using special microscopes. Here the the ocean comes to life in front of our passengers!
  • Rosin / Express (2-2.5 hours) departs at 10:00, 14:00. 
  • Are you trying to fit numerous activities to your tight schedule during your stay in Iceland? Then the Whale Watching Express is your ideal choice! The Rose is our fast and luxurious boat built especially for whale watching, one of it´s kind in Iceland. She gets you to the whale watching area in only 15-20 minutes so in total the whole tour takes a mere 2-2,5 hours. You therefore spend less time travelling but the same amount of time whale watching as on other whale watching tours from Reykjavík.

Additional information:


We recommend warm clothes, such as hats, mittens and scarfs, as it does get cold out on sea. We also recommend some cool sunglasses and even some sunscreen in the summer months! The tour is dependent on weather and sightings can not be guaranteed.

Weather and sea conditions can be unpredictable, especially during the winter months. Boat captains will make their decision to sail based on many years of experience, always keeping in mind passenger safety and comfort.

We follow the IceWhale code of conduct for responsible whale watching as we have great respect for the wildlife on the bay. We let the animals approach us and keep our distance so that we do not disturb their daily routine.

Sometimes in the winter we might sail from other harbors south of Reykjavik for better sea conditions. Then we will provide transport for all passengers to the alternative location of departure. The duration of the tour will be slightly longer due to this extra journey from Reykjavik to the other harbor and back.
