Whale Safari is Reykavik's and Akureyri´s only small groups whale watching tour operator. Our specially constructed RIB boats are made to get you as close as possible to the whales, dolphins and puffins of the Faxaflói Bay and the famous Eyjafjord humpbacks. Our RIBS only seat 12 passengers per boat, each with an expert whale watching guide and captain on board.

All our small group tours are real ocean safaris and the ride on our 450 to 700 horsepower boats is an adventure in itself. On our Reykjavík tours we also visit the puffins when they are in season before searching for the minke and humpback whales, we even do a sightseeing tour of Reykjavík from the sea front. On our Akureyri tours explore the deepest and most beautiful fjord in Iceland before searching for the famous "Eyjafjord Humpbacks"  Oh! And both these tours only less take then two hours.

We see whales and/or dolphins on more then 92% of our tours. If we don´t see whales or dolphins on your tour you can try again for free on the Whale Watching Classic or Akureyri Whale Watching any time you like.

Our ticket office and service centers are located in the Old Harbour of downtown Reykjavík and next to the Hof Cultural Centre in downtown Akureyri and are open from 8:00-20:00 during the season.

About The Wildlife Of Faxaflói Bay

There are 23 species of whales (cetaceans) that are known to be found living in the seas around Iceland. But whales are not alone in our northern waters.  The abundance of nutrients and food in the cold waters around our shores give the marine life a chance to flourish. Sea birds in the millions, puffins, skuas, arctic terns and many more rule the island and the skies above the seas. Seals frolic and relax like only seals can and the strange basking sharks are sometimes glimpsed.

Summer (May – August) is the peak season to explore the ocean and search for most marine life, and this is when we run our RIB tours. The winter months have also been very productive, and we run tours at that time in our bigger boats. Winter tours come with the added bonus of beautiful snow capped mountains, sun setting skies and opportunities, from other tours, to see the incredible Northern Lights
