Tour itinerary changes:
At all times your safety is our first priority. You can expect any kind of weather in Iceland.

The tour is dependent on weather and sightings cannot be guaranteed. Weather and sea conditions can be unpredictable during the winter months.

We can never guarantee sightings on our tours, but in case of no sightings we do offer a FREE ticket to try again!

Sometimes in the winter we might sail from other harbours south of Reykjavik for better sea conditions, in which case we provide transport for all our passengers to and from Reykjavik. In this case the tour might be slightly longer due to the extra drive.

Don’t forget to add your admission to the Whales of Iceland Exhibition, the perfect add on to your whale watching tour!
