Passengers may use own mask or can be purchased at the spot for 200 ISK.

We are kindly asking passengers that only 1 person of the group step in to the office for the check -in so that we can maintain 2 meter distancing.

Please be aware that due to environmental reasons during certain times of the year our trips may be delivered on a shared boat with one of our partners. At Reykjavik Sailors we are committed to ensuring the environment is kept pristine by making sure fewer boats are on the water.  

Please note: Whale Watching is a natural activity governed by the laws of the weather. If the trip is cancelled due to bad weather, the Whale Watching ticket is refunded if following tour was not joined before or you can change your reservation to next available day.
