The summer is a great time to go whale watching from Reykjavík harbour. In the bay resides a large variety of whales, dolphins and birds that happily enjoy the long days and bright nights of the Icelandic summer. The minke whales are cheerful and in large numbers, along with the quick and quirky white-beaked dolphins, the cute harbour porpoises and the massive humpback whales.
We have more than 15 years experience of guiding and operating whale watching tours in the Faxafói bay, so you can be certain that we love and respect the whales and the wildlife in our native bay. Our trips always bear in mind the wellbeing of the whales, and we are also active participants in the protection and research of whales.
