All about the trip
Our 12-meter long boat allows us to get very close to the animals in a way that’s extra safe for both our passengers and the whales. When we head out into the bay, it’s a fast, thrilling ride with the wind in your hair at a comfortable cruising speed of 32 knots so we have plenty of time out in the whales’ feeding grounds. On the way back to the harbor, we take a scenic route along the coast of Reykjavík, which represents a perfect photo opportunity. During summer we also stop by the puffin island Akurey to catch a glimpse of these adorable seabirds that live around the coast of Iceland during their nesting season. Before or after your tour we recommend that you stop by the whales of Iceland exhibition in the harbor area as the admission is included with the RIB express tour.
Our RIB was custom built in the UK and has been equipped with suspension seating, or “shock seats”, for extra safety and comfort while on board. These shock seats are scientifically proven to provide a more cushioned ride than any other type of seats, meaning a much more comfortable ride than with other companies’ RIBs with stationary seats, even in choppier seas.
To keep our passengers cozy and safe, we provide everyone with warm flotation suits, life vests, gloves, and goggles. On every tour, we have an expert, experienced guide who will provide information about the animals and the bay in English.Watch on Youtube
