About Arctic Sea Tours

Arctic Sea Tours offer whale watching from Dalvik close to Akureyri in North Iceland. In Dalvik, there are two options for whale watching, with a traditional fishing boat or in a fast and safe Express Whale Watching speedboat. Arctic Sea Tours offers suspension seats on a RIB boat which are scientifically proven to provide better Shock Mitigation than any other seats, making it more comfortable and safer for you.

Our location is 66°N close to the Arctic circle which lies just north of Iceland and through Grimsey island. So if you're looking to cross the Arctic Circle, search for puffins, learn about the local culture & history, or if you're simply just looking for a good time, join us on an adventure!

We operate two licensed oak passenger boats and one express rhib boat, equipped according to strict standards set by the Icelandic Maritime Administration. We emphasize personal service and small groups of passengers. We do our best to make your tour a special one and provide you with an unforgettable experience. We care greatly about the environment and animals around us and treat them with respect and caution, and ask that our visitors do the same.
