Whale Watching Express

Exciting Whale & Puffin Watching Speedboat Tour in a Rib Boat from Dalvik

Try whale watching on an exciting rib speedboat tour from Dalvik with 99% whale or dolphin sightings - if you don't see a whale or a dolphin then we will give you another tour.

The Whale Watching & Puffin Express is a fast and safe one and a half hour RIB boat or speed boat tour that takes place within the majestic mountains and in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur in North Iceland. The speed gives us an excellent opportunity to go further and sail through a wider area. In one hour we could go from Dalvik to Akureyri or almost to Grimsey, which lies on the Arctic Circle. On the way, we are almost guaranteed to see whales!

In the summertime, we very often see puffins as well! Between April 15th and August 15th, puffins are abundant in the bay and we are likely to see them on our tour. If you are planning to join our tour in the summertime. 

Whale watching doesn't get much better than this! It's the perfect way to see the majestic whales, super cute puffins and all the while, enjoy an adrenaline-pumping experience. The thrill of going fast on the water is not to be ignored and you can expect great excitement and a wonderful whale watching adventure. Arctic Sea Tours offer passengers suspension seats, which makes this tour safer and gives you more comfort. They are scientifically proven to provide better Shock Mitigation than any other seats. Suspension seats reduce the risk of injuries and physical fatigue.

"Fantastic experience"


This is a “must-do” when you are on the North side of Iceland. Great boat, great equipment and great people. The only “complaint” must be that we didn’t get any jumping whales, but we saw 5 whales and it was fantastic!
