  • Húsavík: Big Whale Safari & Puffin Island Tour

    1. Húsavík: Big Whale Safari & Puffin Island Tour

    After you have been equipped with a warm safety overall and a life vest, step aboard a modern RIB speedboat to begin your exciting adventure. Head out to the beautiful surroundings of Skjálfandi Bay while your specialized guide demonstrates safety on-board and gives you live commentary on the sights encountered along the way. Your first visit will be Puffin Island during the nesting period (April 15 – August 20), where you can observe thousands of colorfully-beaked puffins, often called "the Clowns of the Ocean." The high speeds of your boat will make it more likely you will spot some of the bigger whales, such as the majestic blue whales and acrobatic humpback whales. Watching whales in their natural environment from a RIB speedboat is a unique experience. At the end of the tour, enjoy a little surprise from a local winemaker.

    Excellent tour with a great team! We got to see 3 whales so the sea sickness was all worth it ;) Make sure to eat before going out when the sea conditions aren’t great!

    Make sure to bring hats and gloves—it's always colder in the bay than in the town. When everybody is ready the guide will show the way to the boat where passengers will find their seats and get informed about safety regulations on board.

    The first pit-stop is Puffin Island (during puffin season which is from 1st May- 20th August). Circle around the Island, enjoying the view of thousands of sweet-looking puffins during their breeding period.

    The next destination is whale watching in Skjálfandi Bay, an area renowned for its rich wildlife, Víknafjöll and Kinnarfjöll mountain r...

    We had a great time and saw many whales. We are very happy we chose this type of boat for our whale watching experience.

We can only recommend the Speddboot Tour with Gentle Giants! We were lucky enough to see humpback whales playing. Great care was taken not to disturb the animals. The trip alone was worth the money.

Great experience on the speedboat. We saw hundreds of small whales and dolphins. The guides were super polite and nice. I can only recommend it to everyone.
