Whale watching with Keli Sea Tours
Welcome aboard an traditional Icelandic oak boat, operated by a family company in Akureyr, and view the beautiful Eyjafjörður bay with mountains on both sides. Experience the wildlife on the ocean as we travel from Akureyri to the whale’s habitat, in one of the larger and most beautiful fjords in Iceland and you’ll get a different perspective on our beautiful town.
Eyjafjordur waters is known for hosting various types of whales. The most common whales in the fjord nowadays are the humpback whale, minke whale, harbour porpoise and some types of dolphins.
You’ll get an overall layer on board for warmth but we highly recommend that you dress warmly and wear waterproof clothes, footwear and protective bags for your camera, it can be cold and wet out at sea and the salt from the ocean is not good for your equipment.
Keli seatours is located in Akureyri, northeast Iceland. Our Ticket Center is conveniently located in Akureyri. All our boat tours depart from Akureyri harbour right beside our Ticket Center in Hof Menningarhús Akureyri.
