This unique trip takes us into the waters where ocean giants swim in the shadow of the magnificent Snæfellsjökull Glacier, searching around the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Nowhere else in Iceland is there a better chance to see toothed-whales such as orcas, sperm whales and pilot whales than along this beautiful coastline.  The orcas are more often seen in the spring and early summer, April to early July, but there is a chance of seeing them all the way through the summer months. Male sperm whales can be seen especially between April and June in deeper water. Come July and on into the autumn the chances of seeing pilot whales, often in groups of hundreds of animals, increases. Other whales that can be seen are humpback whales and minke whales as well as white-beaked dolphins. We get as close as we can without disturbing the whales.
