2 Hours Wildlife tour itinerary for Reykjavik: Savour RIB Express Whale Watching
Join an adventurous RIB Express tour in Faxaflói Bay to get up close and personal with the wildlife! Admission to the Iceland Whales Exhibition is included in the price for the tour and Puffin Islands are visited in the summertime.
After checking in at the ticket office, meet your Reykjavik tour guide to go over safety information and get suited up.
Sail out on this high-speed RIB Express boat for a fast-paced adventure to search for whales, dolphins and porpoises. This 12-meter-long boat allows you to get close to the animals in a way that's extra safe for both passengers and the whales.
As you sail out into the bay, it’s a fast, thrilling ride with the wind in your hair – the boat has a comfortable cruising speed of 32 knots.
On the way back to the harbour, enjoy a scenic route along the coast of Reykjavík, a perfect photo opportunity! In summer (May-August), the tour also stops by the Puffin Island Akurey to catch a glimpse of these adorable seabirds that live around the coast of Iceland during their nesting season.
Before or after your tour, it is recommended that you stop by the Whales of Iceland Exhibition in the harbour area as the admission is included with the RIB Express tour.
