Gentle Giants Whale Watching in Húsavík Iceland

With Gentle Giants you can experience exciting seafaring adventures. We are located in the beautiful fishing village Húsavík, in the north of Iceland. Our town has gained a reputation of being the whale watching capital of Europe – for a reason of course. With a 98% success rate of spotting whales, our aim is to raise general awareness and interest in whales as well as their habitat. Welcome to experience unforgettable adventures with us at Gentle Giants.

Our company is proud of its originality and background and is owned by people with vast experience in the field. We were born by the bay of Skjálfandi and our ancestors too. Way back!

What makes our seafaring adventures so memorable? Maybe the close-up encounters with whales (which you had only dreamt of before) together with stunning nature and personal service onboard? Maybe the great amounts of fresh fish which you can catch with your bare hands and cook the same evening? Maybe the sail around an island with 250.000 puffins above, around and under you. We can offer you experiences that you do not find elsewhere.
