RIB Boat Express Whale Watching Tour in Husavik

This Húsavík whale watching tour takes place on a RIB boat. Seeing the whales in their natural habitat this up close is a breathtaking experience. So if you are up for an adventure on the sea, the RIB tour is the way to go. The speed, nature and of course the whales and puffins come together to make this an unforgettable experience.

Join this Húsavík whale watching tour by RIB boat and have the chance to see different whale species in a short amount of time. Skjálfandi bay is a wonderful place to experience whale watching in all its glory.  The most common whales in this bay are humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and minke whales. If you are lucky, you might even get the chance to see blue and fin whales.

On this tour, the focus is mostly on the big whales. The RIB boat allows you to get closer to the whales and wildlife than other boats can offer. Furthermore, it is possible to cover a larger area and you are able to go further out of the bay where the bigger whales often are found.

The RIB boat travels very fast, making the trip more exciting and adventurous. Being up close and personal to these magnificent creatures is quite incredible. Sometimes, lucky passengers are almost able to touch the whales, when they decide to surface next to the boat.

You also stop at a puffin island, where thousands of puffins stay during the nesting period from around mid-April until mid/end of August.

The trip takes approximately 2.5 hours and to join this tour you have to be 8 of or older or a minimum of 130 cm in height.

This Húsavík whale watching tour is operated by one of our reliable partners.
