    There really are few things that beat the fresh smell of the ocean on a beautiful day in Skjálfandi Bay, aboard our traditional oak boats.
    Our experienced crew will give you a unique adventure, whether you are an early bird, enjoy the daytime at sea or if you’re up for a whale watching spectacle in the midnight sun!

    This fantastic 3 hour tour takes you to traditional whale watching areas in Skjálfandi Bay. Here you will get the chance to experience whales, dolphins and birds in their natural surroundings. Every tour is different and you never know what amazing species and wildlife shows you will get to see during the trip. The most common whale and dolphin species in Skjálfandi Bay are humpback whales, Minke whales, white beaked dolphins, porpoises and in the beginning of summer blue whales and fin whales.

    With our years of experience and knowledge from sailing through the bay of Skjálfandi, we guarantee your upmost comfort, enjoyment and authentic adventure, on each of our tours.
