Arctic Whale Watching in Dalvik

Whale Watching Tour in the North of Iceland

Whale watching from Dalvik close to Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland, with Arctic Sea Tours is truly a fun sea adventure you won't forget. We're proud to say that we have great sighting success and five stars on TripAdvisor!

The whale watching takes place in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur followed by sea fishing inside the majestic mountains of Tröllaskagi just short of the Arctic Circle. Join us on an enjoyable and exciting adventure at sea.

Whale watching is an activity you should not miss out on!

In Dalvík, you have an exceptionally good chance to encounter the great humpback whale and often we spot white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, the small harbor porpoises and sometimes even the majestic blue whale, fin whales or killer whales.

Overall, we have seen whales or dolphins in 98% of our whale watching tours! The whale watching tour is built up as an adventure. So in addition to having an excellent chance of seeing whales, you can also expect even more fun.

On the very rare occasion, we do not see any whales, we will offer you the chance to revisit the tour.

"Great whale watching tour from Dalvik"


We went for a whale watching tour from Dalvik. The weather was amazing! Unfortunately the waves were a bit rough because we had to sail a bit our of the fjord.

"Best Whale Watching Experience Ever"


The tour was well organized and efficiently run. We saw perhaps 20 Humpbacks and two Minkes very close to the boat. The fishing was fun when we got back to harbor and the grilled fillets were heavenly. It was one of the highlights of our tour of Iceland

"Fantastic whale watching"


We had an amazing trip with this group seeing dozens of humpback whales close to the boat as well as some dolphins. The guys were really good with finding the whales and giving us information.

"Does not disappoint!"


This is a must do when travelling to Iceland. We landed on this tour after alot of research. The small groups, warm clothing and sea angling sealed the deal when we were deciding. I am so glad we chose as we did. The guide and captain put us on whales quickly and allowed us to watch them in their natural habitat. Highly recommended!
