Exciting 2 Hour Boat Tour from Husavik with Whale and Puffin Watching
Complete your trip to North Iceland by getting up-close and personal with the whales of Skjálfandi Bay. Húsavík Adventures offers a unique whale-watching experience for tourists traveling in the area.
We currently offer whale watching and breathtaking nature experience sailing trips onboard RIB boats in Skjálfandi Bay outside Húsavík. Húsavík is located in the northern part of Iceland on the eastern shore of Skjálfandi Bay and is known as the whale watching capital of Europe.
Be sure to dress warmly to meet the weather, then meet us at the Husavik harbor. There, you’ll meet your expert whale-watching guide and the captain of your RIB boat. These agile vessels are smaller than normal touring ships, giving you the speed to cover more distance and allowing you to get closer to the whales.
You’ll be provided with a warm, water-resistant overall suit and a life vest for your comfort and safety before being transported out into Skjálfandi Bay. Blue whales, humpbacks, minkes, and porpoises have all been seen in the bay, adding an element of surprise to your journey - who knows which of these gentle giants you might see!
Your 2-hour tour will give you plenty of time to take in the spectacular scenery surrounding the bay. Skjálfandi was created by glacier activity and now features the flowing Skjálfandafljót and Laxá rivers and incredible mountain vistas, as well as Flatey and Lundey islands. It’s the perfect place for sightseeing and offers a unique look at the land from the sea.
Because we travel in speedy RIB boats, you’re guaranteed to have a small-group experience as we seek out the whales and wildlife the ocean has to offer.
