Today we will be operating on our lovely vessel Eldey for the 9:00 and 13:00 Whale Watching tour. Make sure to dress appropriately for the tours as it is always colder on sea than on land.
- CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 9:00
- CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 13:00
COVID-19: Keep in mind that passengers and crew are asked to ensure their own hygiene and safety at all times. Washing hands thoroughly with soap and using a hand sanitiser is advised.
CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 09:00
Report from Eldey: Today we sailed from Hafnarfjörður with high expectations since the last couple of days we spotted some whales in this area. It was difficult at the beginning to find a individual but eventually after a lot of searching we finally found our Humpback Whale. This whale didnt want to get to close to our boat at the beginning but later started to approach us and we were able to see very beautiful fluke dives. Later we started to go back to the harbour and the whale followed us inside the harbour making the perfect end to this morning whale watching tour.

CLASSIC WHALE TOUR | 1300
Report from Eldey: This afternoon the weather changed and it felt like a summers day! We hadnt even left the harbour yet and could already see a humpback whale! This whale was rolling and showing its belly and pectoral fins! We stayed with it for a bit before seeing what else was in the bay. We sailed for a bit but sadly didnt see anymore cetaceans but lots of sea birds. Eventually we got back to Reykjavik, still enjoying the sun!
