Our RIB boats offer an unparalleled experience, allowing you to witness wildlife up close and personal. The thrill of being so close to these creatures in their natural habitat is an unforgettable experience.

Our experienced naturalist guide will provide live commentary throughout the tour, enhancing your understanding of the marine life you encounter.

The tour promises exciting encounters with various whale species, including minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises. The opportunity to observe these creatures in their natural habitat is a privilege we cherish.

As the tour concludes, we return to Reykjavik’s coastline, granting you a unique perspective of the city’s iconic landmarks. Admire the Viking ship sculpture Sólfarið and the captivating Harpa Concert Hall.
