Whale Watching Yacht cruise

2,5-3 Hours


All year

Join Harpa Yachts for a comfortable whale & dolphin watching cruise from Reykjavík Old Harbor.
On this cruise with a small group we sail out from the old harbor in downtown Reykjavík out to Faxafloi bay looking for whales & dolphins.

Depending on the season you might experience a wide variety of wildlife in the picturesque surroundings of Reykjavík with mountains and stunning scenery everywhere you look.

The main species we see regularly are Minke whales, Humpback whales, White-beaked dolphins and Harbor porpoises. During the summer months we will see the puffins in the tour sitting on the ocean and diving for food. Note that puffins can only be seen from approximately the middle of May to the middle of August.

Harpa yachts is a family owned and operated company, and the owners have decades of experience in providing visitors with experiences of a lifetime.

Guarantee: This is wild nature and of course we haven’t trained the whales and dolphins. So if we do not see them you are welcome to join us again free of charge.

This deluxe cruise offers a more personal service and less crowded scenery with fewer passengers.  In our tours we use two yachts, MY Harpa with interior refitted 2019 (35 passengers) and MY Amelia, old style, but very nice interior (95 passengers). Both yachts have good outside areas to view the whales and dolphins.

We recommend booking in advance, because we limit group sizes to enhance customer satisfaction.

*Please note that the morning tours at 9.15 are available from March 15th. to October 15th.


Our official age limit for children is 7 year old, set by our experience that many young childrens quite often seem to not like tours like this. However if parents trust their childrens to enjoy the tour we allow younger childrens on board. Then please book them in as a 7 year old.
