Select your preferred departure time, and head to the dock in Husavík, Iceland’s whale-watching capital.
Settle on deck on the traditional, spacious oak boat. If the weather requires it, you’ll be provided with a coverall and raincoat.
Admire the views of the Vik’s mountains as you cruise to Skjalfandi Bay. The sheltered inlet offers a high chance of spotting various types of marine life, from harbor porpoises to blue and humpback whales.
Although June to August brings the best chance of sightings, the crew has recently reported more early spring and autumn sightings, increasing the number of visitors who see the whales.
Learn about the marine environment via live commentary from the onboard guide. Plus, enjoy hot chocolate and an Icelandic kleina (twisted donut) before your cruise ends back in Husavik.
