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

Husavik has been called the best place in the world to see the friendly minke whale - normally quite timid creatures but here they have been known to approach the boats and surface right alongside. Whales are often encountered within 20 minutes of leaving the harbor and appear to take as much interest in humans as we do in them. Boisterous white beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises frequently join the party and sometimes humpback and other large whales are spotted.
