Reykjavik Whale Watching RIB Charter

Cruise on a RIB boat and search for beautiful whales. Witness Iceland’s seafaring culture and waltz through the jovial Old Harbour in downtown Reyjkjavík. The harbour is your scenic launching pad for an incredible adventure in the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

RIB boats have a design that lets you get as close as possible to majestic marine creatures without disturbing their habitat. Before riding the waves of the Atlantic, you will stop at the gorgeous Akurey Island which is world-renowned for its nesting puffins. 

After capturing some photos of these adorable birds, your boat will transport you further out to sea for a grandiose meeting with all sorts of whale species. Minke whales, humpbacks, harbour porpoises, and even the enormous blue whale live in these waters.  

After the exhilarating feeling of seeing amazing animals at sea, feel the power of the ocean as you sail back to the shoreline. Your captain will steer the boat along a route that provides a sensational vantage of the harbour.

Have your camera ready as this is the perfect angle to capture a brilliant panorama of the Sun Voyager sculpture and the Harpa Concert Hall, two of Iceland’s most treasured cultural landmarks.
