Hop aboard this small-group luxury yacht whale watching tour from the Reykjavik Old Harbour.

On this two and a half to three hour tour which is operated all year round at 13.15 (1:15 pm), we cruise into Faxafloi Bay in search of the giants of the sea, the whales. 

The most common whales in our bay are the baleen whales minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. Besides the whales, we also see a lot of sea birds — different ducks and seagulls, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes, sea gannet and more. Occasionally we see killer whales, pilot whales and other types. Although highly unusual, fin whales and blue whales have been seen on occasion.

During summer, we stop at puffin island to watch these colourful birds on our way back to Faxafloi bay. Puffins are the most populated bird species in Iceland, but still, they are hard to find. 

This boat tour is made even more incredible due to the incredible views you can enjoy from the boat. These include Snaefellsnes peninsula (sometimes called “Iceland in miniature”), Reykjanes Peninsula, the Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik City, and the mountains Esja and Akrafjall.

Harpa Yacht is a 70 feet luxury yacht, made by the legendary Cantiery di Pisa. It is very stable and boasts a beautiful newly renovated interior: an onboard bar, saloon and a lounge. Onboard, there are also educational materials and a kids corner.

We can pick you up at your hotel (charges occur), or you can show up at our sales office at the harbour in time for departure.

This tour involves a small-group with fewer passengers to ensure enough space for everybody on board and personnel service.

Whale watching is an incredible experience, and this tour is sure to enhance your trip to Iceland.
