RIB Whale Watching Tour
Join us for this amazing RIB Whale Watching Tour from Húsavík.
We offer a 2-hour whale watching tour on a speedy RIB boat from the harbor of Húsavík – The Whale Capital of Iceland. Included is an expert whale watching guide, a captain on board, warm water resistant overall suit and a life vest. Bring your hats and gloves with you – the bay can be pretty cold!
The tour begins with a sail to the beautiful Skjálfandi bay. There are many whale species that are known to be accommodated in Skjálfandi bay, for an example the Blue whale, the Humpback whale and the Mink whale. The speedy RIB boats make it more likely to have a close encounter with the giants, being able to drive huge amount of miles in the trip. Also with only 12 passengers or fewer on board, competition for the best view on board is eliminated.
Among places we’ll see is Lundey (Puffin Island)*, known for its great amount of the popular bird. Passengers will also see the Tjörnes peninsula, known for its fossil layers with the most ancient one being two millions years old!
*Puffin season is ca. 1st May-20th August. Outside that time of the year our tours are Big Whales exclusive!
