Salka Whale Watching

Husavik whale watching.

At Salka whale watching we offer whale watching tours on beautiful oak boats.

Come and enjoy your self at sea. Take in the stunning landscape and get the chance to see whales, puffins, and birds in their natural surroundings. Our most popular tour is the whales and puffins tour. We sail off to puffin island where you can see thousands of puffins nesting, then we head to traditional whale watching areas at Skjalfandi bay.

Our captains have years of experience as fishermen and whale watching captains and our guides have excellent knowledge of the local wildlife. Breath in the fresh air and let our very capable staff take good care of you.

We are open from 23rd of April to 9th October.
