Before departing from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík, you will meet your guide and be provided with warm overalls, life jackets, goggles and gloves before boarding. Enjoy breathtaking scenery of the surrounding mountains and landscape on the way out to the feeding grounds. During the summer months your boat will also make a stop at the puffin island, Akurey.

Begin your tour with hotel pickup (if option selected) that will take you to the Special Tours ticket office in the Old Harbour. If pickup is not selected, the meeting point is the ticket office in the Old Harbour. After checking in, put on your warm overalls and safety gear and listen to your guide's safety speech before boarding a brand-new 12m custom-built RIB express boat. The new RIB boat features special shock-absorbing seats that make your tour more comfortable and stable. This 2 hour tour will take you out to the whale's feeding grounds in search of humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. Take in the beautiful scenery around you in Faxaflói Bay on the way out, including the famous Esja mountain. During the summer months when the puffins are in Iceland for their nesting season you will stop by Akurey, one of the most popular nesting islands. Before returning to shore you will also get to see the beautiful Reykjavík coastline, so don't forget to bring your camera! After returning to the Old Harbour your drop-off bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel (if option selected).
