Explore the seas on this adventure of a lifetime express whale watching tour on engineered RIB boat.

Search for the wildlife and explore seas on the adventure of a lifetime on the express, small group whale watching tour. The specially engineered RIB boats get you closer and faster to the whales and puffins than our bigger boats. These stable and safe boats also allow us to search a bigger area, thus increasing the likelihood of seeing the whales, dolphins and birdlife.    

This fantastic express tour starts from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. During the tour we'll see puffins in their natural surroundings on nearby islands (season 15.May - 15.August) before heading out further in search of whales and dolphins. Seeing the wildlife as up close as you can is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. On the way back to Reykjavik, you will see the beautiful view of the city shore line and the harbour side of Iceland's most famour building, the mesmerizing Harpa Concert Hall.
