Description

Keep your eyes peeled for majestic whales and adorable puffins during these 2 different cruises. With several departure times available, choose which days and what order you’d like to take the 2 tours and then bundle up in warm clothes before you head to the waterfront.

Meet at the Old Harbor for a 1-hour puffin-watching tour and take a short ride on a small boat named Skúlaskeid (Old Skúli), perfect for puffin watching with its shallow draught. Admire the seabirds as the boat gets very close to small islands where the Atlantic puffins live and learn about the birds from your guides, very knowledgeable about the thriving wildlife in the surroundings of Reykjavík.

If you like, take your whale-watching cruise on a different day at the departure time of your preference. Look for minke whales and humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbour porpoises in Faxaflói Bay and listen to engaging commentary from your guide. Choose from 2 boats—the speedy express boat Lilja or the family-friendly Andrea.

Lilja is the express boat, whisking you to the whale-watching area faster than the other boats but still allowing you to spend the same time amount of time whale watching. Or select the Andrea, the biggest whale-watching boat in Iceland, offering an educational and interactive focus as well as a cafeteria and restroom onboard.

The guides were very knowledgeable. The whales were difficult to see as it was very choppy waters and difficult to see the fin of the whale.

Fantastic experience!! We saw a Humpback whale breach the water as soon as we got out to the whale watching area! Absolutely amazing!! Great staff, nice boat! Puffin experience was a little disappointing because you could only see the puffins flying. We basically saw that on the whale watching tour. The puffins burrow in the ground so you can’t see them on the island. Staff on the boat was amazing though!!
