This unique trip takes us into the waters where ocean gianst swim in the shadow of the magnificent Snæfellsjökull Glacier, seaching around the Snæfellsnes paninsula. Nowhere else in Iceland is there a better change to see toothed-whales such as orcas, sperm whales and pilot whales than along this beautiful costline.  The orcas are more often seen in winter and early in the summer, during April and June, but there is a chance of seeing them all the way through the summer months. Male sperm whales can be seen especially in June in deeper water. Other whales that can be seen are humpback whales, minke whales and blue-whales as well as white-beakced dolphins. We get as cloese as we can without disturbing the whales while we wnjoy the spectacle of them feeding and playing.
