If you’ve ever watched movies and shows with whales, then you have probably wondered what it would be like to witness these animals in person. The seas of Reykjavik give you that opportunity. Professional crews will take you to the most popular sighting spots and prepare you for the experience. Apart from this, there is also the Viking feel to the seas of Reykjavik where these ancient people lived. Whether you love whales or are a fan of Vikings, travelling to the open seas to go whale watching is not an experience you want to miss while at Reykjavik.
Once you join the vessel, you will first be briefed about the safety precautions and then given a floatable vest for your own safety. Then the boat will travel to the most popular sites to see the whales and other aquatic animals. Depending on the tour you choose, you will be at sea for anywhere between 2 to 3.5 hours. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to the harbour.
