AKUREYRI WHALE WATCHING

AKUREYRI WHALE WATCHING

We have a 99.6% sighting success since June 1st 2015

  • “Stunning scenery, with whales!”
    I wandered in to the office and asked if they thought there was much chance of seeing whales that day. I was drily informed by a guide that the probability was between 99-100% so I booked and am so glad I did! We saw lots of minke whales and humpbacks, with some of the humpbacks coming very close to us....

  • “First Class Experience!”
    Today we went on their last whale watching trip of the year, they end now until next Spring. And what a way to finish! We saw minke and humpbacks playing and diving no more than 5 metres from our boat. For over an hour we watched and photographed these amazing creatures, seemingly oblivious to us being there.

FAQ: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

It is usually colder at sea than on land and often there is more wind as well. So dress warmly. Bring layers and if you have a windbreaker. Hats and gloves are also useful. But don't worry, we also have blankets and raincoats on the boat and there are cozy inside areas if you want to warm up in between.

If you are going on the Whale Watching Extreme tour we will provide you with a warm and waterproof suit. Underneath the suit you can just wear normal clothes. A warm jumper is usually enough. But we would advise you to bring warm hats (baseball caps will fly away) and gloves.
