  • Please show your smartphone ticket to the staff at Gentle Giants ticket office (with the big blue flags)
  • The check-in is at least 30 minutes before the departure
  • If no whales or dolphins are seen on the tour, you will be offered a voucher for a traditional whale watching tour on oak boats free of charge, however, no refund is given
  • Join a tour that's had a 99% whale-spotting success rate, so your chance to spot these majestic mammals is high
  • Look out for humpbacks, minkes, blue whales, harbour porpoises, and white-beaked dolphins
  • Take a trip to Puffin Island, where thousands of puffins flock every summer, and spot whales and porpoises en-route

Ride a RIB speedboat that's faster than the wind and take to Skjálfandi Bay where larger whales swim. With 24 species of whales in the area, there's a good chance of seeing a variety of beautiful sea behemoths. The ones likely to be spotted are humpbacks, minkes, blue whales, harbour porpoise, and the white-beaked dolphin.

From April 15 to August 20 (approximately) you'll be able to take a trip to Puffin Island. Around 70% of Arctic Puffins nest around Iceland, so opportunity is rife for wildlife lovers.

  • Cancellation is possible until 24 hours before your visit.
  • Rescheduling is possible until 24 hours before your visit.
