What to bring:
This whale watching & sea angling tour is operated from Hauganes, a small fishing village on the west side of Eyjafjörður. Hauganes is just 30 km North of Akureyri, around 25 minute drive. From this beautiful town, our tour will quickly immerse you in the midst of the whale populations and rich sea life characteristic of the area. The whales are always just a short trip from Hauganes, whether the whales have ventured deep into the fjord or stay closer to Hrisey, they are always just a short trip away from Hauganes.
On this whale watching tour you will enjoy a comfortable tour on our two traditional Icelandic oak boats while observing the fantastic scenery, bird life, and of course the diverse range of whale species of Eyjafjordur. We commonly see Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Harbour Porpoise, and White Beaked Dolphins. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a Killer Whale or a Blue Whale. Enjoy a little sea angling on the return trip and have your catch filleted to take with you.
Carbon emissions play an ever-increasing role in environmental issues such as climate change. With our carbon neutral program we neutralize the carbon emissions we create through our special Whale Forest forestry plan. We offset our carbon dioxide emissions by planting one tree for each whale watching tour to sequester the amount of carbon equivalent to our emissions. Also, our oak boats run partially on bio diesel made from recycled cooking oil from restaurants. Our guests can therefore be assure that by going on this tour they minimize their carbon footprint. Good for our guests and of course the environment!
Our captains for this tour spend their winters as professional fishermen so you can be assured you’re in good hands during the summer season of whale watching. In 2016 we had a 100% success rate of spotting whales and expect no less in 2017!
At the end of a successful whale watching tour we offer a 30 min Sea Angling. The most commonly caught fish on our tours are cod, haddock, pollock and catfish. If you are lucky, you might even catch a giant halibut. We provide all the equipment needed for fishing and assistance by experienced guides.
