    What to Expect
    How could the Húsavík Original Whale Watching tour possibly get better? Of course by adding a visit to Puffin Island, the home of thousands of puffins. In this approx. 3 hour on board a traditional Icelandic oak boat you discover the magnificent nature of Skjálfandi bay observing whales, dolphins, and puffins among with other seabirds in their natural habitat. Enjoy the smooth, safe sailing of a traditional wooden oak boat and treat yourself to a cup of hot chocolate and cinnamon buns.

    The Húsavík Original Whale Watching and Puffins is an ideal choice for families. It is an authentic wildlife adventure by the pioneers of whale watching in Iceland.
