We have a 98% success rate of spotting whales on our tours. Our staff has vast experience at sea, in particular around the Skjálfandi bay. We will do our best to make your tour an unforgettable experience.

We have several Boats:

SYLVÍA is probably the most beautiful boat in Húsavík harbour. The high front makes her look very proud, crossing Skjálfandi bay with self confidence in search for whales. This traditional Icelandic oak boat was built and used for fishing, but converted into a passenger vessel in 2007.

FALDUR is a boat with history - once used for fishing, and even whale-hunting; killing whales as daily bread. She came to Húsavík and was rebuilt into a whale watching boat in the year 2001.

ATHENA is our speedy fibre glass boat, specialised for sea angling and to take smaller groups for various activities. She is the fastest passenger vessel in Skjálfandi Bay.
