Full description

Experience the adrenaline-pumping thrill of racing through the water as you go in search of whales and dolphins around the North Iceland coastline. Meet humpback whales, spot white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, harbor porpoises, and sometimes even a magnificent blue whale, fin whale, or killer whale.

Cruise along and take in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur. Have the chance to see puffins that breed in the bay in the summertime between April and August.

Relax in suspension seats, which make the tour safer and give more comfort when traveling fast through the water. Head home having seen the rich abundance of Icelandic wildlife.

    We booked this excursion because we really wanted to travel to Grimsey Island in the arctic circle. The ferry didn't run on Tuesday, but the description of this tour says that it travels to Grimsey island. It did not. When we asked they said it was not possible because it is 25 miles away. Understandable, but it should not be in the description of the tour. It also says that a printed voucher is required. That is difficult when traveling in a campervan. I tried to check through get your guide and they confirmed that a printed voucher is required. I wasted time and even had dreams about the frustration of finding a way to print a voucher. Morning of the tour I caked and they said it was no problem and when we arrived they did not need any voucher, just our name. The tour itself was beautiful. We saw a whale and dolphins and stunning scenery. We just booked with other expectations because of the description.

    Great experience! We saw whales and dolphins. Definitely do the speedboat tour. The guides can react quickly when an animal is sighted in the distance. The kids (14 and 11) loved it too.

    A friendly and professional team, the excursion lasted longer than expected because the captain wanted to show us as many whales as possible. Magical ! The speed boat is very comfortable.
