Whale watching

private tours from Reykjavik Harbour

Let us take you on a private whale watching tour.  The feeling when experiencing whales up close is magnificent, seeing these giant creatures swimming around in their natural environment is an experience everyone visiting Iceland should try and definitely a must do for nature lovers. The whales that are most commonly seen on our tours are humpback whales, minke whales, porpoises and dolphins.


Maria Tours offers private tours, perfect for families, friends, and groups up to 10 people. Our tours are personal, high of quality and standards, where we strive for our guests to get the most out of their experience.


Our boat Maria goes out from Reykjavik harbor, where the captain welcomes the guests on board. The boat sails into Faxi Bay where the captain will find suitable locations for whale watching. The location can differ from day to day depending on sea conditions, weather etc. The captain strives to find the most pleasant and comfortable locations at all times. Please note that it is never possible to guarantee that whales will be spotted on the tour but our success rate is very high.


Combining whale watching with other sea adventures is also a good idea, it has been a great success among our guests to combine whale watching and sea angling, please ask us for a proposal. There is no additional cost for combining two adventures on the same tour.



Iceland Outfitters provides rain jackets and life vests.

Please wear warm clothes, even though the weather is warm and good, it will be colder out on the sea.
