Join this amazing 2-hour RIB Express tour. During the tour, you will get up close and personal with the magnificent whales of Faxaflói Bay. The 12-meter-long boat allows you to get very close to the animals in a way that is extra safe for both the passengers and the whales.

On the way out of the whale watching area, you will stop by the puffin island Akurey to catch a glimpse of these adorable seabirds that live on the coast of Iceland during their nesting season. When you head out into the bay enjoy the fast, thrilling ride with the wind in your hair.

The boat will have a comfortable cruising speed of 32 knots so you’ll have plenty of time out in the whales' feeding grounds. On the way back to the harbor enjoy a scenic route along the coast of Reykjavík, a perfect photo opportunity.
