Overview
Sometimes whale watching cruises on huge boats make it hard to be able to actually see the ocean life unless you board first and claim the best spots. This whale watching tour from Husavik is on board an RIB boat limited to just 12 passengers, so you’re never in competition for the best vantage points. Plus, its easy to stay warm and safe with an included warm suit and life jacket.

Amazing experience. The tour provides everyone with a warm suit and recommended we also leave our jackets and hats on since it is cold on the ocean. The guide was great and provided a lot a interesting information on the area and wildlife. The boat ride itself was wonderful with stunning views and amazing scenery. The caption and guide quickly found several whales and made sure we had plenty of opportunities for capturing them with videos and pictures.

We drove up to Husavik exclusively to do the whale tour . We were not disappointed. The tour company took good care of us, everyone was given a snowmobile suit to wear over their clothing for the trip. The lady announcing the tour did a great job explaining the behavior of the hump back whales. We had to go out quite far to see the whales, and we were lucky enough to see 3 humpbacks.

We had such a great time - saw puffins galore and were lucky to see several whales. Laura was super knowledgeable and added a lot of interesting facts to our tour. It was awesome to be able to be so close to the whales, thanks to the expert navigation from our captain Daniel! It was cold and rainy but we didn’t care - it was awesome!

While we were the unfortunate 1% who did not get to see the humpbacks, this was an incredible experience nevertheless! The sea was choppy and we got constantly splashed in the face by the freezing cold water, but the views from the water, the vivid colors, and the excitement of the speed boat ride were completely worth it. Our guide Iñaki and the captain were amazing, attentive, funny and knowledgeable. And watching the puffins at sea was a pure joy. Since we did not See the bales we received a return ticket allowing us to come back any time for another try. I highly recommend Husavik Adventures. By all means do dress as warmly as you can. The suit and the raincoat don't completely protect you from the water if your ride is as bumpy as ours. Cover your face with a scarf or a gaiter. You'll thanks me for that.

Thank you 608aidak For sharing your experience. Indeed in some tours it can be a bit more difficult o find whales, but as you mention, it can also be fun and a very exciting experience to sail through the beautiful bay on the speed boats. Thanks for the kind comments towards the crew. All the best, Daniel G.
