Whales & Puffins

Based on 2 traveller reviews

This is a combo trip of two tours: one puffin watching tour and another whale watching tour! These are two separate tours and you do not have to do them on the same day.

One tour gives you the chance of seeing the adorable little puffins in only a short boat ride! These colourful birds come to Iceland in May and only stay for a short period of time to breed. We sail towards the island on a small boat named Skúlaskeið that has a very shallow draught so it gets us as close as possible to the puffin island.

For your other tour, you can choose between our two whale watching boats, Rósin and Andrea.

Rósin is our Express boat, it gets you out to the whale watching area faster than the other whale watching boats but still allows you to spend a long time whale watching.

The Andrea is the biggest whale watching boat in Iceland and has an educational and interactive focus. It is also very family friendly and spacious with a cafeteria on-board.

Come and see Iceland's most impressive animals. Check availability by choosing a date.
