Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips. Puffins galore can be spotted from the protected Melrakkaey island where thousands of other birds also nest. Sea-angling is the perfect family outing and gets even more exciting when you get to keep your catch. From Olafsvik, the Whale tour gives excellent whale watching in deep waters at the foot of the majestic Snaefellsjokull Glacier. Winter brings the orcas, dolphins and white-tailed eagles. We take you to them on what is by now, our most popular tour. "We're living it!"

we were lucky to experience a family of orcas surrounding the ship and as well a basking shark swimming around a kayaker! it was awesome, although the sea was rough and windy but well worth!

Wonderful afternoon on the boat! We saw two humpback whales and were very lucky to spend some time watching both. Obviously with any tour like this if comes down to luck but the crew were very helpful and informative!

Our whale watching experience was interesting: for the first three hours we saw no whales. During the last hour, however, we saw, up close, 2 beautiful minke whales and 5 spirited white-beaked dolphins. The whale watch had a profound affect on some of us in...More

Hi there, Yes, suggest you will be best with 4WD in Feb/March - as per the locals! If you check search engines like Skyskanner there are much cheaper prices. Have fun! Stewarts62

At their web page you can find a whale diary where you can check how many times they saw whales around that time in the past years.
