More information

Experience the best Iceland has to offer with spectacular whale watching opportunities and wonders of Iceland Exhibition.

Whale Watching tour is unique experience and we do our best to make this a lifetime experience for you.
All the year around you’ll be able to see a variety of whales by the coast, from the Minke, Humpback and Killer whales to White Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises. The high peak season for whale watching is from April to October, but of course the ocean is always full of adventures. You can see all the other aquatic species, all sorts of wildlife and at the same time enjoy the splendid scenery around the coast of Iceland.

Same day you can visit Perlan and its Wonders of Iceland exhibition where in fun and educational way you can increase you knowledge about Icelandic volcanoes, tectonic plates, earthquakes and geothermal areas, experience cinematic underwater journey around Iceland where you will meet with all ocean mammals right at your fingertips and after you may get inside Ice Cave, man built with over 350 tons of snow and feel like in a real one. On observation deck on the top floor of Perlan you will have an incredible 360° view of Reykjavik and the surroundings.

Please be aware that due to environmental reasons during certain times of the year Whale Watching trips may be delivered on a shared boat with one of our partners. At Reykjavik Sailors we are committed to ensuring the environment is kept pristine by making sure fewer boats are on the water during slower periods.

Please note: Whale Watching is a natural activity governed by the laws of the weather. If the trip is cancelled due to bad weather, the Whale Watching ticket is refunded if following tour was not joined before.

If boat tour (part of combo) is cancelled on our behalf but purchased ticket includes the admission to Wonders of Iceland, full price for the following admission will be charged and difference in prices will be refunded.
If you don’t see a whale on the Whale Watching tour, you have the option to take the tour again for free.
NOTE: You should schedule to be at our boat departure point at least 30 minutes before scheduled departure. Tickets can be bought at the booking panel on the webpage and you also can buy tickets at our departure zones.
