Whale Watching on a RIB

This is an exciting new tour.. we don’t need to say more!

Once you head out to the adventure at sea and search for wildlife on the whale watching tour of a lifetime on this express, small group tour. Their specially crafted RIB boats get you closer and quicker to the whales and puffins than the bigger boats. These stable and safe boats also allow us to search for a bigger area, thus increasing your likely hood of viewing the whales, dolphins and bird life.
After our tour we sail back to Reykjavik, where we will take a ride along the city shoreline, viewing it from the ocean. Including a stop at the harbor side of Iceland´s most famous building, the mesmerizing Harpa Concert Hall.

Tour highlights

  • Get as close to nature with the whales, puffins, and wildlife as possible without disturbing them.
  • The RIB boats are fast and can cover a bigger search area than the classic whale watching boats.
  • Only 12 people per boat with expert whale guide for a small group experience
  • Less time than the “Classic Whale Watching tour”, only 2 hours from the harbor to harbor.
  • “Whale Guarantee”, If we are unlucky and can’t seem to find any whales you can try again for free on the classic tour.

Cancelations due to weather: We sometimes need to cancel the whale watching part of this tour due to winds in the main whale habitat area. In such an event we will offer you two choices.
The most fun one is: we take you on a Puffins & Reykjavík tour in the RIB boat with the addition of sailing between the islands of the coast AND you get to go on the Whale Watching Classic which is on a much bigger boat that can sail in stronger winds.). Or the more boring choice…a full refund. 🙂
