What You Can Expect

Iceland Super Saver: Puffin Cruise plus Whale-Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Spot whales on this Reykjavik Super Saver

Puffin Express Cruise to Akurey from Reykjavik (1 Hour)
Select a departure time to suit your schedule and then depart from your Reykjavik hotel and travel to the harbor to board a comfortable boat destined for the idyllic island of Akurey, famed for its dense puffin population. Find a comfortable seat on board and warm yourself with a soft, provided blanket while listening to illuminating narration that details the behavior and physiology of the puffins. 

As you approach the island, gaze out of the window and marvel at the agile birds as they dive into the water for fish. Use binoculars to get a closer look at the puffins and scour the sea for other bird species like Arctic terns, black guillemots and northern fulmars. 

Arrive at the rocky shores of Akurey and circle the island for more prime puffin vantage points. Then, make the serene journey back to your Reykjavik hotel, where the tour concludes. 

Whale-Watching Tour from Reykjavik (2.5 or 3.5 Hours)
Opt for a tour length and departure time to suit to your schedule and then embark on either a leisurely 3.5-hour cruise or an express 2.5-hour high-speed boat ride. Depart from your Reykjavik hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the quaint Old Harbour to board your luxurious whale-watching vessel.  

Keep the cold at bay with a pair of provided thermal overalls and then find yourself a prime viewing position on the comfortable deck. While listening to illuminating natural commentary from your guide, scan the calm ocean for sightings of other wildlife species like white-beaked dolphins and porpoises. Keep your eyes open for common sightings of minke whales and humpback whales and enjoy 90% whale-spotting success. 

Revitalize with steaming beverages like hot chocolate and aromatic coffee throughout your cruise in the inside viewing area (at your own expense). After capturing countless photographs of majestic whales, relax during the journey by boat and coach to your Reykjavik hotel. 

In the unlikely event you don’t spot any whales in Faxaflói Bay, receive a complimentary ticket for another whale-watching cruise. 

Please note: You can choose to take the tours on the same day, or across separate days during your Iceland vacation.

The tour group did a professional job. We were fortunate to see several humpbacks and several minke whales. The puffins had pretty much cleared out for the season, but we did see some. If you want puffins, go earlier in the summer

These two tours were good--we saw dolphins on the whale watching tour no whales though and tons of puffins right out in front of the city.

We highly recommend this tour! The operators of the tour were very professional tour was postponed due to high winds but was held later on in the day. Laurence, our tour guide was very knowledgeable regarding whales and their habits. Got to see a few humpbacks feeding on krill!

I had the two tour on one day, whale watching from 9, and puffin watching at 12:30. There were a 30min break between them. It is useful to pick up the receipts from the sales office, than use the viator voucher on the boats. The staff was very helpful, and kind!

Seas were a little rough that day so we did not get as close as we wanted to the islands but that is the sea and nature. We did see a few Puffins but would have liked to see them closer. Hope to come back someday and do it again on a more leisurely schedule.
