Enjoy spectacular and personal whale watching experience with RIB speedboat, that allows us to approach very close and safe to the whales.

With 12 meters long rib speedboat we can get to the whales faster than any other boat and low position in the water gives you a close view experience, safe for whales and passengers.

On this tour during the summer we will visit puffin island Akurey to look at these incredibly beautiful and funny birds and on the way back we will take beautiful route along the Reykjavik coast.

By Reykjavik coast we will be able to see the Minke, Humpback and Killer whales to White Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises and all the other aquatic species, all sorts of wildlife and at the same time enjoy the splendid scenery around the coast of Iceland.

RIB was custom built and has been equipped with suspension seating, for extra safety and comfort also on choppy ocean.
