About Us

Midnight sun Húsavík

The Family

Salka is a whale watching company founded by a local family in Húsavík in 2012.

In March 2022, Salka Whale Watching became a part of North Sailing and for the upcoming season, all our tours will run in cooperation with North Sailing.

Our Crew

Our captains are expert fishermen and whale watching captains with years of experience in Skjálfandi bay. They navigate our vessels with great respect to local wildlife. Our guides have excellent wildlife and nature knowledge and are always excited to share information and their experience with our guests.

Enjoy the Ride

Our goal is to give every passenger sufficient space and to ensure complete comfort onboard, allowing them to enjoy the wildlife, while nature is impacted as little as possible. We encourage our passengers to ask the crew as many questions during the tour as they like!

We Respect the Nature and our Environment

We believe in responsible tourism to preserve natural resources for future generations. Salka Whale Watching strictly follows IceWhale’s Code of Conduct for responsible whale watching.

As part of our responsible whale watching policy, we support the campaign Meet Us Don’t Eat Us and recommend Whale Friendly restaurants to our customers.
