Main Description

If you have the change you should not miss joining us on a Whale watching excursion. Not only is seeing whales a unique experience but also a trip by boat a nice change from the tours operated on land.

Meeting point is the harbour where you go on board, at the Elding whale watching company. Here you can get an overall if you feel cold or just want to be safe. If you still feel cold you can have a coffee or even something stronger to warm you up for the tour. The boat is equipped with all necessary facilities to make your trip comfortable. So you can also choose if you want to sit inside or outside.

The ship then leaves and you will see the Faxafloi bay in which Reykjavik is located. Do not forget to look around and look at Reykjavik from the sea. Your captain will use modern technology and his experience to find the whales. Certain birds for example fly over areas where they find certain fish which is eaten by the whales, like this the birds can lead the way.

Meanwhile your guide will not only be on the watch-out for you and with you but also tell you more about the animals you encounter.

The most common animals you may encounter are Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins and Porpoises and sometimes others.

Sometimes the weather changes the plan and we may take you to another harbour to sail from, in this case the tour may take up to 5 hours .
