Gain insight into some of Iceland’s most magnificent native wildlife on an adventurous whale-watching cruise from Reykjavik along with admission to the Whales of Iceland Exhibition. Hop aboard your boat in Reykjavik’s Old Harbor and head out into Faxaflói Bay. Watch the waves for graceful minke and humpback whales, and curious porpoises and dolphins. Learn of the creatures’ life-cycles and habits from the informative on-board commentary. Before or after the cruise, visit the Whales of Iceland exhibition at your leisure and admire life-size models of Iceland’s native whale species.
We saw a whale and dolphins. The guide and boat crew gave us every opportunity to see the wildlife and we were not disappointed. Very informative guide.
Super ,dud see any whales but not for want of trying by the crew 3.5 hours looking. The added bonus of a visit to the whales of Iceland as a freebie was very much appreciated.
Before booking this trip I read reviews and didn and #39;t really expect to see any whales as its out of season although I was hoping to. I think if I went back again I would give this trip a miss.

Frankly, this tour was a disaster. The weather was quite rough, with high winds, big waves, and cold temperatures. This alone would not have been a problem, but we saw no wildlife on this trip. Admittedly, spotting a whale can be hit or miss but, after studying this more, I found out that the Reykjavik bay is relatively shallow for whales and, at best, you can hope to see Minke whales but no humpbacks. My wife and I had done a similar trip in Akureyri and there we spotted many humpbacks, possibly because of the greater depth of the bay in that part of Iceland.
