All board this fantastic whale watching excursion.
Discover the incredible marine life that lives in Faxaflói bay and experience the beautiful nature that Iceland has to offer you. This is an excellent activity for anyone travelling around Reykjanes. Your tour departs from the town of Vogar, which is between Keflavík and Hafnarfjörður in the Southwest of Iceland.
The tour starts in the harbour, where you are welcomed aboard the boat by the crew. The boat has a very spacious indoor area. You can also go up to the upper deck to enjoy the outdoors with the sea in front of you and the aroma of it all around. Of course, you can also choose to enjoy the view from the comfort of a table in our heated indoor area.
Originally constructed as a fishing boat, this boat was used as such for many years. In 2016 it was rebuilt as a whale-watching boat. Today it sails as a whale watching, northern light and sea angling boat and disturbs nature as little as possible.
You will spend around three hours at sea and marvel at the rich marine life in the Faxaflói. The most common whale species in the Faxaflói are minke whales, humpback whales, harbour porpoise and dolphins. Each of these species is unique and fascinating. The whales are the most common in the summer, so taking a whale watching tour at this time will give you the best chance of seeing them in their natural environment. Here in Faxaflói, you can see mackerel in late summer, and you sometimes spot puffin when they are picking up food.
Nature is unpredictable, and no two trips are the same. Each tour is a new and great adventure and will enhance your trip to Iceland.
Don't miss this incredible opportunity to see the magnificent whale species and the vast wildlife that Faxaflói bay has to offer.
