See Mother Nature’s most wonderful, and wettest creatures up real close. You could see Minke whales, White-Beaked Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises or if you're lucky, the great Humpback whale.
Seeing whales is much easier if you step aboard a boat and head offshore a bit – and there’s no finer whale watching boat in which to make the voyage than Andrea, which docks at the charming old Reykjavik harbour. That’s precisely why she is the boat we choose to use. 

On this three-hour-long voyage, you’ll see the sea, you’ll spy the Icelandic capital and the surrounding countryside from a unique angle, you’ll see plenty of seabirds (which fly so close that they surprise many by being one of the highlights of the whole trip), and you’ll hear engaging and useful commentary from our expert guide. 

There’s also a superb chance that you’ll get to see great whales, porpoises and dolphins too – or maybe even all three. Due to Andrea’s expert and experienced crew, this tour has the enviable distinction of seeing whales over 95% of the time. That’s mighty impressive when you consider we’re talking about wild animals that live underwater! You are most likely to see minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales – but there are other rarer visitors around as well… 

As well as top quality guiding, this whale watching trip also offers warm overalls if you get cold, a guaranteed inside seat for all passengers, and a free repeat tour if you are not lucky enough to see any whales first time round. There is a café/bar on board.
