Whales, puffins & sea tours

Whales, puffins & sea tours

Our boat tour company partners
Whales are huge and puffins are small, but both difficult to find. That is unless you know where to look. These companies have been looking for many years and they can help you enjoy these wonderful creatures. Enjoy whale watching and puffin spotting in many parts of Iceland. These whale watching specialists have 99% success rates.


We share the sentiments of many of the companies who run these tours that the consumption of whale meat by tourists to Iceland increases the need to hunt whales (this is not just down to tourists, of course, but whale eating tourists don’t help the issue).
