A tour with North Sailing offers the chance to catch sightings of these majestic creatures. Hop aboard a traditional wooden boat off the coast of Húsavík (the capital of whale watching in Iceland), to spend a day hunting the seas for Minke and Humpback whales. While whale watching is the main feature, you may also see dolphins and seabirds, such as puffins, on this tour. Coveralls, hot cocoa, and traditional Icelandic scones will keep you warm and fed during your time on the boat. Be conscious of weather conditions, as seasickness can occur with particularly choppy waters. If no whales are spotted that day, North Sailing will offer you a future free tour.

In our case we were passing by and couldn't come back the next day as they suggested. They could have taken us to see the puffins that was right on the round trip. They should be more creative when selling something so complicated. The sea was not violent, there was sun, but it was not possible. We've seen them in Norway, snow falling.
They didn’t warned us about the possibilite of not having it We woke up at seven and sent then an e-mail explaining that it was rainning and we were woried that we would drive all the way there and no... more »
