WHALE WATCHING WITH RIB BOAT



What we will see
  • Ísafjarðardjúp, the stunning fjord region
  • Vigur Island
  • Whales and different  kind of birds


What we will do
  • 2 hours sightseeing and whale safari tour from Ísafjörður town in the West Fjords of Iceland, which offers a magnificent view over the surrounding landscape from the sea side.  The tour is operated in a RIB boat, providing a more intimate experience while being environmentally friendly.
  • We start with a safety instruction and the distribution of warm overalls and life jackets which you will have to wear onboard. It is important to wear warm footwear and even mittens, as it gets cold once out on the sea. This tour will take you into Ísafjarðardjúp, the stunning fjord region just off Ísafjörður. As the area is so remote, whales are plentiful and friendly, sometimes even showing off for visitors!  The tour has over 90% success rate in spotting whales.
  • We pass the beautiful bird island Vigur or Snæfjallaströnd (Snow-Mountain-Coast) chances are high that you’ll see different kinds of birds such as puffins, eider ducks and other seabirds flying around the area.  It is also common to see seals frolicking in the waters. Time for photo shooting is included.
