Whales & Puffins
How could the Húsavík Original Whale Watching tour possibly get better? Of course by sailing around Puffin Island, the home of thousands of puffins.
Sail for a little over 3 hours to discover the magnificent nature of Skjálfandi Bay, Iceland, observing whales, dolphins and puffins among other sea birds in their natural habitat.
The Húsavík Original Whale Watching and Puffins is an ideal choice for families. It is an authentic wildlife adventure by the pioneers of whale watching in Iceland.
Lundey, one of Skjalfandi Bay's pearls, is the home of about 200,000 puffins during their breeding season – a spectacular sight. Husavik has been called the best place in the world to see the friendly minke whale – which are normally quite timid creatures, but here they have been known to approach the boats and surface right alongside.
Whales are often encountered within 20 minutes of leaving the harbor and appear to take as much interest in humans as we do in them. Boisterous white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises frequently join the party, and sometimes humpback and other large whales are spotted.
