Whales & Sea Angling

1. May - 15. Sept Daily About 5-6 hours Reykjavík Old Harbour Very easy

In this tour you can first enjoy a whale watching boat adventure before then getting some hands-on action at sea angling, just like the locals do.

First you will enjoy White Beaked Dolphins bow riding alongside the boat or a Minke whale curiously taking a look at the passengers on-board of the boats. Most common whale sights in Faxaflói bay are Minke whales and Humpback whales, White-Beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises.

You can choose between our two whale watching tours, EXPRESS or CLASSIC.

13:00 departure: The CLASSIC tour is a more relaxed boat ride, and has an educational and interactive focus. It is also very family friendly and spacious with a cafeteria on-board. We are usually back in the harbour around 16:00-16:30, and then you can pop over to our sea angling boat, Rósin, for the fishing tour.

14:00 departure: The EXPRESS tour gets you out to the whale watching area faster than the other whale watching boats, but still allows you to spend just as long whale watching. This tour will also arrive back at the harbour around 16:00-16:30, with the fishing tour starting at 17:00.

The sea angling tour is suitable for all ages and is a great way to experience some authentic Icelandic culture as well. The boat is well equipped with fishing rods and waterproof jackets for the ones who are fishing. The tour is perfectly suited both to experienced fishermen and to those who simply want to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings with a fishing rod in their hand.
