Whale watching from Dalvik close to Akureyri north Iceland with Arctic Sea Tours is adventure on sea. Great sighting success and five stars on TripAdvisor. Whale watching takes place in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur and fishing inside the majestic mountains of Trollaskagi just short off the Arctic Circle. Whale watching is an activity you should not miss out on! In Dalvik you have an exceptionally good chance to encounter the great humpback whale and often we spot white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, the small harbor porpoises and sometimes even the majestic blue whale. Overall we have seen whales or dolphins in 98% of our whale watching tours. The whale watching tour is built up as an adventure. So with an excellent chance of seeing whales you can also expect more fun with fishing and tasting of the freshly caught cod, haddock, pollock or atlantic catfish. In the year 2016 from 1st May - 30th November we saw humpback whales in 99.5% of the tours, unbelievable and long may it continue. Whale watching schedule 2017 09:00 1st May - 15th October 11:00 1st June - 31st August 13:00 1st March - 30th November 15:00 11th June - 22nd August Whale Watching Express is fast and safe one and a half hour tour within the majestic mountains and in the picturesque landscape of Eyjafjordur north Iceland. The speed gives us excellent opportunity to go further and sail through wider area. In one hour we could go from Dalvik to Akureyri or almost to Grimsey lying on the Arctic Circle. With Eyjafjordur whale watching area one of the best in the world for humpback whales one has 99% viewing success on these tours. The thrill of going fast on water is not to be ignored and you can expect great excitement and wonderful whale watching adventure. Arctic Sea Tours are the only operator offering suspension seats which make this tours more safe and in more comfort. They are scientifically proven to provide better Shock Mitigation than any other seats. Suspension seats reduce risk of injuries and physical fatigue. Are you ready for a rush hour?

Wonderful tour with informative commentary. We saw a pod of 5 humpback whales breaching at once. Our group caught 20 haddock and cod after 15min fishing. When we finished the tour the fish were barbecued in garlic butter.
