With an on-board display of whale teeth, bones, baleen, plankton nets and a microscope,this tour truly is a hands-on floating Whale Watching classroom with educational & interactive focus!
WHALE WATCHING EXPRESS [1st June – 30th Sep]:
Join our fast and luxurious boat, which will get you to the whale watching grounds in only 20-30 minutes! Perfectly built for whale watching with a high cruising speed. Even though the total time is about 1 hour less than the classic whale watching tour you spend about the same time out in the feeding grounds searching for whales. A great tour for those who want to spend less time out at sea but still want to experience a true whale watching adventure from Reykjavik.
