Hauganes whale watching

Shortest sail to the whale watching spot in Iceland

Whale watching is our life and joy. We live by the Eyjafjordur bay and are privileged to have all these wonderful creatures swimming in the ocean within reach. We cannot wait for you to meet them. The tours include Whale Watching with whales spotted in over 98% of the tours over the years. Our surroundings is the beautiful Eyjafjörður bay which has in the recent years been a habitat for humpback whales, mink whales, dolphins and more species.

As we set sail to reach the whales, our guides – who are locals and highly experienced, will make an effort to make you feel as comfortable as possible. You’ll receive warm overalls and there are blankets on board. To ensure that the animals are not disturbed by our presence, we sail at a constant speed towards the whales’ habitat. As a result, a variety of species, from humpback whales to tiny porpoises, often surface within a few feet of the boat. When we reach the whales we’ll make sure not to disturb them with loud noises or sharp movements. Respect for the whales is a key to our tour.

Before we head back to shore we offer those who like to try Sea angling and catch some fish, the ocean around us offers gourmet fish, mostly cod or whatever the ocean will bring. Fish is easily caught with our sea angling rods even for the most inexperienced. If we and you have the time, and weather allows, we might put up a BBQ on the pier or it might be more handy for you to take your catch back with you, filleted and packed by our experienced fishermen.

This is a fully guided tour and we offer coffee and homemade pastries. You will also have access to free WiFi on board our boats!

Humpback whales, minke whales, dolphins and porpoises are commonly spotted during these popular tours.
