Whale Watching & Sea Angling

Watch our whales and enjoy a little sea angling at the end of the tour!

Sea Angling is a great sport for groups and team building. The most commonly caught fish on our tours are cod, haddock, pollock and catfish. If you are lucky, you might even catch a giant halibut! We provide all the equipment needed for fishing and assistance by experienced guides. The sea angling tour is included in our whale watching trip and also as special tours for individuals and groups of all sizes.

Each tour takes about 2,5-3 hours* because we actually don’t have to sail far to see the whales or catch quality fresh healthy fish, most of the time we catch codfish but also halibut and haddock. Our captains have a great experience as fishermen in the icelandic waters and we can almost guarantee that if you give sea angling a try, you will not come back to shore empty handed.
*With a margin of approx. 30 min depending on our success.
