The Original Húsavík Whale Watching tour has given the town a reputation of being Europe’s whale watching capital. Join one of our boats and experience the wildlife in Skjálfandi Bay where you have the opportunity to get in close proximity to the world's largest animals. Whale Watching is now one of the most popular tourist activities in Iceland.
The Puffin Island is visited and crew hoist the sails and the passengers can join in if desired.

Species sighted in this area

Minke whale has been the most common whale in Skjálfandi Bay. Lately the humpback whale has also been a frequent visitor and the chances to see the white-beaked dolphin and the harbour porpoise are fairly high in the bay as well. In the last years the enormous blue whale has been seen in the bay, but usually it stays there early summer before traveling further north. Occasionally more rare species wander into the bay, for example the fin whale, the orca, the northern bottlenose whale and the sei whale.
