Enjoy the beauty of our whales and what Eyjafjörður fjord has to offer (including the Sea Angling).
Whale watching is our life and joy. We live by the Eyjafjörður bay and are privileged to have all these wonderful creatures swimming in the ocean within reach. We cannot wait for you to meet them. The tours include Whale Watching with whales spotted in all our tours last year.
As we set sail to reach the whales, our guides – who are locals and highly experienced, will make an effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible. You’ll receive warm overalls and there are blankets on board. To ensure that the animals are not disturbed by our presence, we sail at a constant speed towards the whales’ habitat. As a result, a variety of species, from humpback whales to tiny porpoises, often surface within a few feet of the boat. When we reach the whales we’ll make sure not to disturb them with loud noises or sharp movements. Respect for the whales is a key to our tour.
The Whale Watching and Sea Angling tour is exactly the same tour as our100% Whale Watching tour but here you will enjoy the Sea Angling part at the end of the tour. This way you can enjoy the fantastic Eyjafjörður fjord even more!
