Overview
More
Elding is a tour supplier in Reykjavik offering whale watching and other adventures at sea all year round. We are conveniently located just off Reykjavik's old harbor. The various types of whales commonly sighted include minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises and the popular humpback whales. We will be accompanied by sea birds such as gannets, puffins, guillemots, cormorants, gulls, kittiwakes, arctic terns, and many more. Check our online Whale Diary for daily updates on whale sightings. To make our tours even more comfortable, we provide our passengers with warm (and floatable) overalls and raincoats. For safety reasons, all children under 12 years of age are required to wear life jackets during the tour.

Response from EldingAdventureAtSea | Property representative |
Hi becky24wales, Pickup is always 45-15 min. prior to tour departure - so in this case it would be from 12:15-12:45. Please note that this service is not included in the tour price. All the best, The Elding Reykjavík team
