A 2 Hour whale & bird watching tour starting from the floating pier in Akureyri.


Experience and get close to the incredible humpback whales of the Eyjafjord, starting from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri. With only 12 passengers on each boat we can guarantee an adventure of a lifetime on an intimate whale watching tour.


Our specially made RIB boats allow you to get closer to the whales and wildlife than any other boat can offer. The RIBs are fast and small boats that will also get you quicker to the whales and cover a bigger area as we search for the wild life. This means a bigger chance of spotting whales, dolphins and bird life with out disturbing them in their natural habitat.


If you have a passion for nature and love for adventure, this is the tour for you!

Tour area

Good to know

Sighting success is 99%, however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores.

Most common species are Humpback whales. If no whales or dolphins are seen on your tour we will offer you a complimentary ticket for our classic whale watching tour, valid for two years.

Please make sure to arrive at least 30 min. prior to departure for this tour.
