Overview
Sometimes whale watching cruises on huge boats make it hard to be able to actually see the ocean life unless you board first and claim the best spots. This whale watching tour from Husavik is on board an RIB boat limited to just 12 passengers, so you’re never in competition for the best vantage points. Plus, its easy to stay warm and safe with an included warm suit and life jacket.
What to Expect
Get your warm clothes and get ready down at Husavik harbour. The tour begins with a sail to the beautiful Skjalfandi bay. There are many whale species that are known to be accommodated in Skjaldandi bay, for an example the Blue whale, the Humpback whale and the Mink whale. The speedy RIB boats are being able to drive a huge amount of miles in the two hours long trip.

Among places, we'll see is Lundey (Puffin Island), known for its great amount of the popular bird. Passengers will also see the Tjörnes peninsula, known for its fossil layers with the most ancient one being two million years old!
