Find a comfortable spot on deck and pull on a pair of provided coveralls to keep you warm. Remember to also bring a hat, scarf and gloves with you to keep you extra toasty. Then, listen as your guide explains what species of marine life you can expect to see, and hear interesting facts and old sea stories about these magnificent mammals.
As your boat slips away from the harbor, scan the water for porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpbacks whales. Make sure you have your camera ready — with up to 90% whale-spotting success, this Faxaflói Bay cruise provides a fantastic chance to see whales. In the unlikely event that you don’t spot a whale, you will receive a complimentary ticket for another boat ride.
If you feel cold during your cruise, warm yourself up inside the cozy viewing area, where coffee, tea, hot chocolate and light refreshments (own expense) are available.
After 2.5 or 3.5 hours, your experience ends with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Did not manage to see any whales but lots of dorsal fins spotted. Bundle up especially during winter. The weather is harsh.

Overall I believe this was a great overall animal friendly experience! You got an amazing overview of the coast off Reykjavik and the crew were absolutely amazing! We unfortunately did not see any sea life so we were given a rain check for another time. We personally were prepared for this as given the time we went end of November the chances were slim.
The boat ride was very choppy which they warn you ahead of time at the ticket desk but luckily they provide free nausea tabs that I highly recommend you take at least 20 minutes before setting off if you are like myself and get sea sick easily. They helped me greatly! I definitely plan on going back and rebooking!
