Reykjavik Whale Watching

See Iceland's gentle giants

Experience the Amazing Wild Life

Katla Whale Watching is the perfect way to experience the amazing wild life found in Faxa Bay, on whose southern shore the capital Reykjavik is located. Many species of whales, dolphins and even seals are to be found in these waters. In addition, the bay is home to millions of sea birds of various species, including the beautiful puffin.

Our Recommended Tours

Our fast maneuverable boats can swiftly move from place to place and so cover a wide area, which of course increases the likelihood of spotting whales. So we´d be delighted to have you come aboard and take the tour with us. We sail daily and you can choose trips from 10:00 in the morning to 21:30 at night. Each trip takes about 1 and a 1/2 hour.




Worth Every Penny

Professional and knowledgeable staff. Super fun boat ride with sightings of Puffins, harbor porpoises, jelly fish, and humpback whale

Amazing experience

One of my favorite activities from our visit to Iceland. It’s so much more fun taking the speedboat out than the larger boats. We saw two whale species as well as a pod of dolphins. It’s not the focus of the trip, but we also saw more puffins than I saw on my separately booked puffin tour. Incredible!

Whale of a good time

Was a lot of fun… as always when it comes to nature, there are no guaranteed sightings but we were lucky enough to see a humpback whale surface a few times. Tour guide was very knowledgeable …

Great Whale Watching Trip!!

Everyone from check-in to the captain 1st mate was awesome. Very smooth process. Boat ride itself is worth the price….But, then we saw Puffins and Humpback whales!! Our group of 2 couples really enjoyed the experience!! Highly recommend!!
