Greet your guide at the Old Harbour, located in downtown Reykjavik. After a short safety briefing, you'll board your boat and set sail on the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

As you sail, listen to information-rich commentary from your guides: hear of what attracts whales to Iceland’s waters and scour the water for sightings of Minke whales, humpback whales, dolphins and porpoises.

Following your whale watching cruise, return to shore and bid your guide farewell. With your tour ticket, you’ll be able to gain free entry to Reykjavik’s incredible Whales of Iceland museum — the largest whale exhibition in the world. The Whales of Iceland audio-guided app is accessible at the App Store and Google Play or can be download on-site with free Wi-Fi and headphones available.

Bathed in the blue light of the ocean, see full scale models of 23 different whale species as you browse exhibits detailing the behavior and physiology of the colossal mammals. Enrich your natural knowledge at interactive stations and follow the migration routes of tagged whales in the wild.

Please note: Whale watching is a natural activity governed by weather and chance. If the trip is cancelled due to bad weather, the whale watching part of the ticket is refunded. If no sightings are on the trip, then you have the option to repeat the tour any time in the future.

Saw some minkie and dolphins going crazy

The boat was nice, the guide was excellent. The only reason for the 4 star is that I had hoped to see the larger whales like in the picture.

Dear Philip T, Thank you for your review. we are delighted to read you enjoyed your tour with us :) We're however sorry to hear you were disappointed by the sightings. We are truly blessed by nature and wildlife in Iceland and we are very lucky to be able to observe such incredible creatures all year-long, just a boat ride away! Of course, since they are free wild animals, there is nothing we can do to guarantee whether or not there will be sightings nor even their quality. In case of no sighting, we however offer a complimentary tour to our passengers. What our years of experience on the sea taught us is that it is recommended to go free of expectations. Whenever we go out on the sea, we are the whales' guests and not the other way around. At Reykjavík Sailors we try our best to observe the animals from a safe and respectful distance to ensure their freedom of movement. Each visit they pay to us is a beautiful gift we will never get enough of. Unfortunately there is nothing we can (or would want to) do to control them, so if there is a specific specie you dream of observing (which is completely understandable), it's always a good excuse to come back to Iceland ;) We hope you had a great time in Iceland, and hope to see you again soon! Best regards,
