Whale Watching in the Fjords of West Iceland

15. Nov - 15. Sept Daily About 2-3 hours Ólafsvik or Grundafjordur Harbour Very easy

In this Whale Watching tour we will most likely see and hear orcas and white beaked dolphins, but other species like minke whales, pilot whales, sperm whales and porpoises have also been seen. With the increase of herring in Snæfellsnes Peninsula over the last few years we have seen a great increase in orcas as they are feeding, travelling and socializing.

An amazing trip that takes you to orca pods where you can witness them feeding, travelling or just playing. Passengers often have a chance of seeing seals, gannets or white-tailed eagles during the tour.
