100% Whale watching from Hauganes
The 100% whale watching tour is a 2,5-3 hour tour on an icelandic traditional oak boat in Eyjafjordur bay. There’s no sea-angling on this tour unlike many other tours, just a focus on watching the whales in their natural habitat. Humpback whales, minke whales, dolphins and porpoises are commonly spotted during these popular tours.
This is a fully guided tour, included is a warm drink/coffee and homemade pastries. You will also have access to free WiFi on board the boats. You’ll receive warm overalls before departure and there are blankets on board for those who need more layers. 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.
A great tour with excellent and experienced english speaking guides, captains who know the oceans like the palm of their hands and even have names for the whales – recognizable by the pattern of their tails.
Respect for the whales and the wildlife is crucial on this tour, when we reach the whales we’ll make sure not to disturb them with loud noises or sharp movements. In return they usually thank us with a spectacular sighting.
