Tour description

After you have enjoyed seeing the white-beaked dolphins bow riding alongside the boat or a minke whale curiously taking a look at the passengers on board, you switch gears and go for the fishing tour. The most common whale sightings in Faxaflói bay are Minke whales, Humpback whalesWhite-beaked dolphins and Harbour porpoises.

The sea angling tour is suitable for all ages and is very cultural as well. The boat is well equipped with fishing rods and waterproof jackets for the ones who are fishing. The tour is perfectly suited both to experienced fishermen and to those who simply want to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings with a fishing rod in their hand.

You can choose between our two whale watching tours, EXPRESS or CLASSIC

13:00 departure: The CLASSIC tour is a more relaxed boat ride, and has an educational and interactive focus. It is also very family friendly and spacious with a cafeteria on-board. We are usually back in the harbour around 16:00-16:30, and then you can pop over to our sea angling boat, Rósin, for the fishing tour.

14:00 departure: The EXPRESS tour gets you out to the whale watching area faster than the other whale watching boats, but still allows you to spend just as long whale watching. Also back around 16:00-16:30, with the fishing tour starting at 17:00.
