Cruise away from Reykjavík‘s Old Harbour out into the waters of Faxaflói Bay on this spectacular Midnight Sun whale watching expedition. This tour is perfect for those who would like to get up close to the gentle giants of the ocean while making the most of Iceland's long summer days.
Iceland has nearly 24-hours of daylight during the peak summer months which allows for some fantastic evening whale watching: This is a unique experience you won‘t want to miss!
Your adventure begins as you board the boat, Rósin, at Reykjavík's pretty Old Harbour. Thermal overalls are available onboard to ensure that you stay warm and dry during your whale watching tour.
Rósin has two restrooms on board, indoor and outdoor seating areas, free Wi-Fi and a snack bar on board for your comfort.
As you sail out to sea, your guide will go over all of the necessary safety information, and then it‘s out to the feeding grounds! There is something extra special about watching whales while surrounded by the glow of the evening sun, reflecting off of the waters around you.
The four most common species that are seen on these tours are humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and harbour porpoises.
The tour departs at 21:00 (9 PM) and returns just before midnight, allowing plenty of time to search for the whales in the feeding grounds with your expert guide. This is an express whale watching tour on a boat that was custom built for whale watching in Iceland.
Please note that transfers are not available for this tour, but your crew will be happy to assist you in organising a taxi back to your hotel if you are not staying in the downtown area.
Make the most of Iceland's Midnight Sun and get to know Iceland's whales out in the wild. Check availability by choosing a date.
