The best place to see whales is in their natural habitat, wouldn't you agree?

Take to the waters around Iceland for an epic whale-spotting adventure. Your 12-meter-long RIB vessel allows you to get close to these incredible animals in a way that's safe, thrilling, and non-intrusive.

On the way back to shore you can admire the dramatic Icelandic coast. In the summer months, you'll stop by the island of Akurey to see the thousands of puffins which line the cliffs during nesting season.
