Prepare yourself for a thrilling and educational tour of the stunning Isafjordur fjord, and witness the majesty of whales and other remarkable marine creatures in their natural habitat. Led by experienced and knowledgeable guides, the tour will offer you insights into the behavior and ecology of these magnificent animals, as well as the unique ecosystem of the fjord.

Climb aboard a fully equipped boat departing from Isafjordur harbor. Feel free to stay indoors to stay warm until the whales appear, or get on deck and look for distant whale blows. The experienced captain onboard will approach them with care to avoid disturbing the marine life.

The fjord is full of wildlife. While humpback and minke whales are commonly seen, dolphins and porpoises can also be spotted. On rare occasions, orcas may pass through the area. During the height of summer, puffins are likely to be seen as they nest on nearby Vigur and Aedey islands. Please note that each tour is unique, and sightings may vary.

The boat is manned by a skilled crew and a guide who deeply cares about marine life and protecting Iceland's natural beauty. They have a thorough knowledge of the local wildlife and the surrounding area and are enthusiastic about sharing their expertise with guests. Throughout the excursion, visitors will also gain insight into the behavior and unique traits of the different whale species that they may come across.

One of the tour's goals is to actively aid ongoing research on the whale population in the area. Participants are encouraged to take photographs of the whales' flukes, commonly known as tails, which can be used to identify individual whales. This way, the tour not only provides an opportunity for an exciting whale-watching experience but also contributes to important scientific research efforts.

After a fantastic experience, you'll return to Isafjordur. If you don't see any whales, you'll get another ticket for free, but the fjord is so full of life that this is extremely unlikely. 

Don't miss this educational and thrilling 2.5-hour whale-watching tour into the Isafjordur fjord. Witness Iceland's majestic whale population and other marine animals, as well as the country's breathtaking views. Check availability now by choosing a date.
