Important Information

We recommend warm clothes, such as hats, mittens and scarfs, as it does get cold out on sea. We also recommend some cool sunglasses and even some sunscreen in the summer months! The tour is dependant on weather and sightings can not be guaranteed.

Weather and sea conditions can be unpredictable during the winter months. Boat captains will make their decision to sail based on many years of experience, always keeping in mind passenger safety and comfort.

We can never guarantee sightings on our tours, but we do keep a sightings log so that our customers can see how previous months have been on our tours.

We follow IceWhale code of conduct for responsible whale watching as we have great respect for the wildlife on the bay. We let the animals approach us and keep our distance so that we do not disturb their daily routine.

Sometimes in the winter we might sail from other harbours south of Reykjavik for better sea conditions, in which case we provide transport for all our passengers to and from Reykjavik, therefore the tour might be slightly longer due to the extra drive.
