Whale Watching Reykjanes
Making the Most of Your Holiday in Iceland
From its scenic home base right on the marina in the town of Keflavík, Whale Watching Reykjanes offers exciting whale watching trips in the waters surrounding the Reykjanes Peninsula. Located just seven minutes from Keflavik International Airport, the company offers a pickup and drop-off service to and from the airport and should you happen to be on a stopover, Whale Watching Reykjanes’ short 2 to 4 hour tours allow you to make the most of your time in Iceland.
Summer is prime-time for whale watching…and more
The waters surrounding the peninsula are prime summer feeding grounds for the many whale species that come to Iceland every year. White Beaked dolphins, Minke whales, Humpbacks, and occasionally Orcas can be seen. Fin and Sei whales are often seen feeding and playing on the water’s surface and adorable puffins sometimes come within metres of the vessel, to the delight of all onboard. Bird lovers will enjoy the noisy chatter of the many seabird varieties nesting in the lava cliffs along the coastline, including guillemots, arctic skua, gannets, and others.
The hunt in on─for the Northern Lights
From September to mid-April is Northern Lights hunting season and Whale Watching Reykjanes gears up for this exciting event every year by using all the technologically advanced tools available to track these awe-inspiring lights. Knowledgeable driver/guides lead the way, filling you in on the science behind this natural phenomenon, and helping you adjust your cameras for optimum shots. If you don’t have a professional camera at hand, your guide will be happy to take a photo of you and the Northern Lights when they appear which you can then upload to your own social media site or cloud storage.
