Tour description

Come aboard an exciting RIB speedboat and see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife that lives in the waters just off the shores of Reykjavík City. Nature lovers looking to see some of Iceland’s majestic whales, dolphins, and porpoises, but who wish to do so in a small group, should grab this chance now.

The tour starts from Reykjavík’s Old Harbour and during your journey, you will travel among the small islands in the Faxaflói Bay, as well as along the coast of Reykjavík, providing you with a fantastic view of the city as you search for the wildlife in the water.

Our RIB speedboats are equipped with high performance suspension seats. These shock absorbing seats improve safety and comfort and reduce the risk of injuries. So, you can comfortably & securely enjoy your tour out on the North Atlantic waters.
