  • Cruise around Skjálfandi bay in North Iceland
  • Spot minke, humpback, and orca whales in their natural environment
  • Tuck into hot chocolate and cinnamon buns on-board

Make your own way to Húsavík harbor to board your ship – a carbon neutral boat that uses a unique hybrid propulsion system and runs on renewable energy instead of fossil fuel. Set out to sail around Skjálfandi bay, admiring the wild scenery of Iceland’s north coast, and looking out for dolphins and sea birds along the coast.

As you approach the whales, listen as your guide tells you more about the magnificent creatures, and explains how the low-noise, low-energy ship is designed to cause minimal interference with their natural environment. If you’re lucky, spot minke, humpback, and orca whales, or even rarer breeds such as sperm whales, pilot whales, or mighty blue whales.

On the way back to shore, warm up with a hot chocolate and some delicious cinnamon buns.

Wow, saw over a dozen humpback whales. They put on quite a show. The crew was nice and informative. The boat was comfortable and stable. Highly recommend. Don't forget a hat and gloves, it gets pretty cold on the water.
