Humpbacks, minke whales, dolphins and porpoises are commonly spotted during these popular tours. To ensure that the animals are not disturbed by our presence, we sail at a constant speed towards the whales’ habitat. As a result, a variety of species, from humpback whales to tiny porpoises, often surface within a few feet of the boat.
Eyjafjörður is abundant in different species of fish. Fishing rods will be available on the boat for those who wish to try a little bit of sea angling.
Hauganes is a typical small fishing village on the west coast of Eyjafjörður about 30 km north of Akureyri. There we board the oak fishing boat used during the summer season for whale watching.
