Make your own way to the pier in central Akureyri to meet your captain in time for a 10am, 12pm, 2pm, or 4pm departure (depending on tour option selected). Don a life jacket and hop aboard a small RIB (rigid-inflatable boat) with space for just 12 people, then set sail along the Eyjafjörður fjord.

As you zip along Iceland’s north coast, listen as your guide points out natural wonders and local wildlife including sea birds. Make several stops along the way and if you’re lucky, get the chance to spot majestic humpback whales, as well as white-beaked dolphins, mink whales, and many other varieties of whale.

After around 2 hours at sea, return to Akureyri, where your tour ends back at the pier.

Best trip of the holiday!!

We had the most wonderful experience on this trip. We saw a Hump back whale really up close - he was about 3 metres from our rib. Amazing
Great whale watching trip - we spent...

Great whale watching trip - we spent about 45 minutes watching a pair of humpbacks swimming around but they were the only two whales we saw. There was one harbor porpoise in the distance on the way back in. Manage your expectations as we did and you'll have a great time. The raft ride was bumpy and chilly - the overalls, etc. that they provided were most welcome. Our raft captain gave us a fun ride on the way back to the pier. Overall a most enjoyable hour or so.
