Reykjavik Whale Watching in the Midnight Sun

What You'll Do

Enjoy an unforgettable whale watching experience in everlasting sunlight. You can expect to see minke whales, white beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and even humpback whales!

Your tour will begin at the old harbour and before we set off you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images, videos and facts about the whales and marine life. During the trip we can expect to see minke whales, white beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and even humpback whales on the two and a half to three and a half hour evening cruise – just as on our day tours!

The mystical midnight sun often casts a beautiful orange and pink glow onto the mountains surrounding the bay and together with the wildlife it provides quite a unique experience. To make the tour even more enjoyable, we often shut off the boat engines to enjoy the soothing sound of the water and the whales and the birds  to the fullest. With the added feature of mellow music played on the way back to port, the tour is ideal for romance or as a start of a night out in the city. If you’re in the mood for some drinks, have a look at our onboard bar menu – we recommend the ‘Whale Punch’!

Since this is a wildlife tour, we urge you to keep in mind that we can never predict or guarantee sightings of any kind. In case we don’t encounter any whales or dolphins, we will offer complimentary tickets so you have the opportunity try again another day.

As the weather in Iceland can be unpredictable, we advise you to plan ahead and dress accordingly. In case of unfavourable conditions in the bay, the itinerary may be altered (often resulting in a slightly longer tour) or the tour could get cancelled altogether. You will be notified of any changes as soon as possible if this is the case.
