15 June - 31 July at 20:30
1 August - 31 August at 19:00

Meet us at our charming red and white ticket office in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík where you will exchange your pre-paid voucher for admission tickets. Our sales staff will show you to our floating wildlife exhibition in our Visitor Centre which is facilitated on board a converted fishing vessel permanently placed by the pier. Before the tour you can enjoy the onboard multimedia show that includes images, videos and facts about the whales and marine life. We can expect to see minke whales, white beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and even humpback whales on the 2,5-3,5 hr. evening cruise - just as on our day tours!

The mystical midnight sun often casts a beautiful orange and pink glow to the mountains surrounding the bay and together with the wildlife it provides quite a unique experience. To make the tour even more enjoyable, we often shut off the boat engines to enjoy the soothing sound of the water and the whales and the birds to the fullest. With the added feature of mellow music played on the way back to port, the tour is ideal for some romance or as a start of a night out in the city. If you're in the mood for some drinks, have a look at our onboard bar menu - we recommend the 'Whale Punch'!

Keep in mind:
*Although our success rate is high, the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores. In case we don't encounter any whales or dolphins on the tour, we do not refund the tour price but in stead offer a return-ticket so you can try again another day. The complimentary ticket is valid for 2 years, for returning passengers only and are non-transferrable between tours.
* The weather can change rapidly in Iceland and therefore the captain may decide to alter routes or cancel the tour on short notice for safety reasons. In this case we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
