Description:

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips....

Laki Tours takes you on an ocean adventure in four different trips. Puffins galore can be spotted from the protected Melrakkaey island where thousands of other birds also nest. Sea-angling is the perfect family outing and gets even more exciting when you get to keep your catch. From Olafsvik, the Ocean's Big 5 tour promises excellent whale watching in deep waters at the foot of the majestic Snaefellsjokull Glacier.

Winter brings the orcas, dolphins and white-tailed eagles. We take you to them on what is by now, our most popular tour.

"We're living it!"

This was the highlight of my trip and I got to go twice. The crew were great, it was very professionally run and they provided you with additional warm clothing which was needed as it is very cold out at sea. After an hour the first time I went the orcas played by the boat and it was estimated that... More

After some cancelations due to the bad weather conditions, we had a great trip, saw several orca's. Good guide and captain, stiil I found we were too close to the orca's.

The tour company was professional and well organized. Provided gear (overalls) was in good condition. They provided tour in English and German and made hot cocoa for the group as well. Unfortunately, we only caught a glimpse of a small group of dolphins, but the crew diligently sailed to area where whales had been recently seen and even extended the... More

Booked the morning tour for the 22/03. We weren't disappointed. Numerous Sperm Whales and Orcas all seen exceptionally well. Helpful information on board, commentary keeping everyone updated and thick waterproof boiler suits all made for a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

The tour was organised very well. Sadly we didn't see any orcas but we did see some dolphins and one humpback. Boat was not too overcrowded and the views of the surroundings were amazing

First of all we should make clear we are fortunate to be able to describe ourselves as whale watching 'veterans' having seen whales on every continent. We have no prior experience of Laki Tours. Laki Tours run whale watching trips throughout the year, twice a day weather permitting, and they have a deserved reputation for finding Orca, especially in winter.... More

We saw lots of Orkas and even some whales which are usually not seen here in winter. The staff was very helpful. They really took their time to search for groups of Orkas and give the customers an unforgettable experience !
