Silent Whale Watching (Carbon-Neutral tour)
Enjoy a silent sailing onboard our electric, eco-friendly whale watching boats. Minimum disturbance to whales and nature and low carbon footprint.
Can you imagine anything better than sailing around Skjálfandi Bay in total silence with pods of whales all around? Reduce your carbon footprint and immerse yourself in this unique whale watching experience, powered by sustainable energy.
Sailing onboard the electric Andvari and the hybrid-electric sailboat Opal is an experience beyond imagination! Gliding silently through the sea allows you to quietly approach the whales in their natural habitat, causing them minimal disturbance.
A breathtaking aspect of the experience is listening to the whales – humpbacks and blue whales are incredibly powerful and can be heard from great distances. Imagine that excitement onboard when hearing the first blow!
The sustainable approach to nature is combined with our professional crew, specially trained in responsible conduct with the whales. As you approach the whales, your guide will tell you more about these magnificent creatures and explain how the low-noise, low-energy ship is designed to cause minimal interference with their natural environment.
On the way back to Húsavík, warm up with a hot chocolate and some freshly baked cinnamon buns.
Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go whale watching on a carbon-neutral boat! This is one of the most environmentally-friendly experiences in Iceland.
