Whale Watching Grundarfjörður
Orcas in winter wonderland scenery
The great phenomenon of orcas in our waters, chasing herring, gives us a wonderful opportunity to see them in their own environment.
Season: 10th December – 31st March
We recommend warm clothes
The great phenomenon of orcas converging in our waters, chasing herring, has provided a wonderful opportunity to see these wild mammals in their own environment, when the herring arrives. We get as close as we can without disturbing the orcas while we enjoy the spectacle of them feeding, travelling or playing. As we look for the orcas, quite often we will come across a pod of dolphins or catch a glimpse of white-tailed eagles hovering overhead. Diving gannets, en masse, is also a common sight as well and can give us a hint of orca presence in the area.
ALL OUR BOAT TRIPS ARE SUBJECT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS.
