Don't miss out on the unforgettable experience Special Tours offers you in whale watching: Whale Watching Express! The Express tour sails on either Lilja, one of our newest additions to the Special Tours fleet, or Rósin, a boat custom-built for whale watching in Iceland.

The whale watching tours start from Reykjavik's Old Harbour. From there it takes only 15-20 minutes to get to the whale watching area. The Express gets you out to the whale watching area in less time but gives you the same time on the bay whale watching. The tour only takes 2-2,5 hours. 

The most common whales spotted include Minke Whales, White-Beaked Dolphins, Harbor Porpoises and even the majestic Humpback Whales. Other species are sometimes spotted, such as fin whales and orcas.
