Iceland is the one of the best whale watching location in the world. The cold waters off the coast play host to a diverse marine life.
The best time for whale watching in Iceland is during the summer months, from April through September, when over 20 species of Cetacea—including the Orca, Minke, Humpback, and Blue Whale—can be seen. Whales and dolphins however tend to stay in the vicinity of Iceland year round. Whale watching tours are therefore popular year round.
In summer, you can choose for RIB speedboats which enable a closer, more personal encounter, compared to traditional oak boats.
