The Big Whale Safari & Puffins is an exciting 2,5-hour tour on a modern RIB speedboat, allowing passengers to explore a wider area of Skjálfandi Bay in search of its gentle inhabitants. With the high speed, the boats can get faster around and increase the chances of spotting some of the bigger whales, such as the majestic blue whale and the acrobatic humpback whale.
For nature lovers, this tour also includes a visit to Puffin Island during the breeding season (April 15th – August 20th). This small island is swarming with thousands of the colourfully-beaked birds, often called “The Clowns of the Ocean”.
Your specialized guide will explain the safety and comfort on board as well as give you commentary on the wildlife and sights encountered. At the end of the tour, you will be served a little surprise from Húsavík’s only winemaker.
