Whales & Puffins
Who would have thought that you could do both Whale watching and Puffin Watching from the centre of Reykjavík? In only a short boat ride away from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík you will get the chance to meet these adorable little birds. We go by our very authentic oak-boat named Skúlaskeið (“Old Skúli“) that is perfect for puffin watching since it has a very shallow draught and therefore can get really close to the puffin islands where the puffins make their studio apartments with their partner. Our guides are very knowledgeable about the thriving birdlife in the surroundings of Reykjavík. You can choose between two types of whale watching boats, Classic and Express.
Our Classic boat is one of the largest whale watching boats in Iceland and has an educational and interactive focus on board. The Classic tour is 3-3.5 hours in duration.
Our Express boat is a fast-cruising catamaran, and takes just 2-2.5 hours. You will spend the same amount of time in the whale watching area, but get out and back much quicker!
Both boats have spacious indoor and outdoor seating areas, a cafeteria on board, restrooms and thermal overalls (also available in children's sizes). The most common whale species in Faxaflói bay are minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises.
Note that these are two separate tours and you do not have to do them on the same day.
