If you have always been interested in sea animals and adventures, do not miss the chance of sighting them in their own habitat. In this Eyjafjord area, in the north Atlantic Ocean, is where a large community of humpbacks whales swim freely, offering an intriguing show of jumps and leaping. The warm of the summer bring the area to life. Join us and let’s receive these much anticipated visitors.

So you can enjoy the experience at its fullest, we have at your disposal our high speed, custom made ship. With the latest navigation technology, it allows us to get deep into the fjord and get as close to the whales as you never been before. The multi deck boat offers varied sights and points of view so whales can be watched in all its splendor.

All of these while comfortable staying in both our indoor and outdoor seating area with many facilities to make your trip pleasant. Among such facilities we offer bar and cafeteria for a quick bite before the magnificent show begins.
