Description:

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips....

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips. Puffins galore can be spotted from the protected Melrakkaey island where thousands of other birds also nest. Sea-angling is the perfect family outing and gets even more exciting when you get to keep your catch. From Olafsvik, the Ocean's Big 5 tour promises excellent whale watching in deep waters at the foot of the majestic Snaefellsjokull Glacier.

Winter brings the orcas, dolphins and white-tailed eagles. We take you to them on what is by now, our most popular tour.

"We're living it!"

Booked the morning tour for the 22/03. We weren't disappointed. Numerous Sperm Whales and Orcas all seen exceptionally well. Helpful information on board, commentary keeping everyone updated and thick waterproof boiler suits all made for a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

The tour was organised very well. Sadly we didn't see any orcas but we did see some dolphins and one humpback. Boat was not too overcrowded and the views of the surroundings were amazing

Really good service from Laki tours before the boat trip and during. We were lucky enough to see a number of orcas on 1st March - a once in s lifetime opportunity for us! Would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Iceland.

First of all we should make clear we are fortunate to be able to describe ourselves as whale watching 'veterans' having seen whales on every continent. We have no prior experience of Laki Tours. Laki Tours run whale watching trips throughout the year, twice a day weather permitting, and they have a deserved reputation for finding Orca, especially in winter.... More

We saw lots of Orkas and even some whales which are usually not seen here in winter. The staff was very helpful. They really took their time to search for groups of Orkas and give the customers an unforgettable experience !

We were welcomed to the tour and all given insulated, waterproof overalls for the boat. I was well dressed but very grateful of this extra layer! It was a beautiful day but still very cold. While out on the boat for just over 3 hours we saw some breathtaking scenery as well as some gannets diving into the sea. After... More

I went with my sis after three days in Grundarfjörður. We had a lovely time, though a bit cold! I advise everyone to dress up even warmer than you think is necessary! You get to borrow an overall which was a great help to keep us dry, but you'll be standing still for a long time so even with three... More
