Description

Experience getting up close to the incredible humpback whales of the Eyjafjord, starting from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri. With only 12 passengers on each boat we can guarantee an adventure of a lifetime on this intimate whale watching tour. Our specially made RIB boats allow you to get closer to the whales and wildlife than any other boat can offer. The RIBs are small and fast boats that get you to the viewing area quickly and cover a bigger area as we search for the wildlife. This means a bigger chance of spotting whales, dolphins and bird life with out disturbing them in their natural habitat.

The Eyjaford is narrow and deep, with 60 km of sheltered waters, and just 6-10 km wide, it is absolutely perfect for our RIB boats. It is also a place of serene beauty, full of marine life and framed in by massive, glacier carved and snow capped mountains. To ride out the fjord is an adventure and photo opportunity not soon forgotten. But we are here for the whales and wildlife, and there is plenty of it. The local population, the Eyjaford humpback whales, are already becoming world famous. They cruise the fjord in summer in a feeding frenzy and reach the height of their activity when the warm summer sun shines throughout the day and night in June, July and August. They are the star of the show here, but we also occasionally spot minke whales, dolphins, harbour porpoises, seals and rarely killer whales.

If you have a passion for nature and love for adventure, this is the tour for you!  

We promise.
