Whale Watching

Special Tours operates two types of whale watching from the Old Harbour in Reykjavik, Whale Watching Classic and Whale Watching Express.

The Whale Watching Classic (3-3.5 hours) is normally operated on our largest boat, Andrea.

The Andrea gives extra comfort, with great inside and outside viewing areas. She is very family friendly with an educational and interactive focus with whale bones, baleen plates and teeth. The Classic tours are guided in English year-round, with German guidance available May 1st - September 30th.

The Whale Watching Express (2-2.5 hours) tours are operated on Lilja . Lilja is excellent for whale watching and has fast cruising speed, getting you out to the whale watching grounds in a shorter time.

Note the Whale Watching Express is only operated from 1st May - 30th September.


NEW

Special Tours Iceland app with 5 languages (English, German, French, Spanish and simplified Chinese) available for Android and Apple. It is available for all clients to download during their tour, with both text and audio information. The app is as close to an audio guided wildlife adventure as possible

The most common whales spotted include minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises.
