Whale watching express

When it comes to whale watching, Special Tours offers you an unforgettable experience: Express for Whale Watching! The Express visit sails on either Lilja, one of our freshest augmentations to the Unique Visits armada, or Rósin, a boat specially worked for whale watching in Iceland.

The Old Harbour in Reykjavik is where the whale watching tours begin. From that point it requires just 15-20 minutes to get to the whale watching region. The Express gives you the same amount of time for bay whale watching while taking you to the whale watching area in less time. The tour only lasts two to five hours.

The most widely recognized whales spotted incorporate Minke Whales, White-Curved Dolphins, Harbor Porpoises and, surprisingly, the magnificent Humpback Whales. Different species are at times spotted, for example, balance whales and orcas.
