Sailing around Skjálfandi Bay on board the most animal- and environmentally-friendly whale watching vessel in the world! Andvari, our electric — and completely silent — boat, glides through the sea, giving you the opportunity to quietly sneak up on the whales in their natural habitat causing them minimum disturbance.
Sustainable approach to nature is combined with our professional crew, especially trained in responsible conduct with the whales. The Husavik Original Silent Whale Watching tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to go whale watching while reducing your carbon footprint down to zero. Our electric, environmentally-friendly, carbon neutral boat is an experience you will never forget!
In this tour you will most likely see Minke whale and the enormous Humpback whale, along with the chance to observe fantastic birdlife and natural scenery. There are two islands in the bay, Lundey (Puffin Island) and Flatey (Flat Island), where a lot of birds nest. Therefore the birdlife is colourful, puffins, arctic terns, guillemots, gannets and more are frequently seen during the tours. The beautiful mountains at the western part of the bay, called Víknafjöll, make a visit to the bay even more worth while.
