When Can I See Whales?
Whales are highly intelligent creatures, with their routines and customs, much like us humans.
We at Salka have set up a sailing schedule that maximises our guests’ enjoyment, experience and probability of seeing nature’s beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, while treating the animals with the love and respect they deserve.
Our Whale Watching Tour
There really are few things that beat the fresh smell of the ocean on a beautiful day in Skjálfandi Bay, aboard our traditional oak boats.
Our experienced crew will give you a unique adventure, whether you are an early bird, enjoy the daytime at sea or if you’re up for a whale watching spectacle in the midnight sun!
This fantastic 3 hour tour takes you to traditional whale watching areas in Skjálfandi Bay. Here you will get the chance to experience whales, dolphins and birds in their natural surroundings. Every tour is different and you never know what amazing species and wildlife shows you will get to see during the trip.
