Eco-friendly Whale Watching (Carbon-Neutral tour)

Enjoy a silent sailing onboard Andvari or Opal, our silent and electric, eco-friendly whale watching boats. Minimum disturbance to whales and nature and no carbon footprint.

Can you imagine anything better than sailing around Skjálfandi Bay with pods of whales all around? Sailing around Skjálfandi Bay on board the most animal- and environmentally-friendly whale watching vessels in the world! Andvari and Opal, our electric — and completely silent — boats, glide through the sea, giving you the opportunity to quietly approach the whales in their natural habitat causing them minimum disturbance.

The sustainable approach to nature is combined with our professional crew, specially trained in responsible conduct with the whales. The Husavik Original Silent Whale Watching tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to go whale watching while reducing your carbon footprint down to zero. Our electric, environmentally-friendly, carbon neutral boat is an experience you will never forget!


  • Hot chocolate and cinnamon buns.


  • Expert whale watching guide.

Extra clothes

  • Warm overalls and raincoats if needed.

We had the best time ever on the Eco Tour. The ship was comfortable and relaxing and the captain made us feel at home and informed us of the ecosystem of the bay.

Dear customers please note

In June the following Silent Whale Watching (Carbon-Neutral) tours have been changed to Húsavík Original Whale Watching tours:

  • 1 June – 15 June at 8:45 & 17:00
  • 16 June – 30 June at 8:45, 11:30, 15:30 & 17:00

Our electric boats are having technical difficulties at the moment and therefore we cannot operate the carbon-neutral tours as planned.

Ópal will still be operated at 11:30 and 15:30, just with reduced green energy capacity.
