Salka is a family owned company. The family has years of experience in the tourist business: running restaurants and the whale watching company since 1997.
Our captains have years of experience as fishermen and whale watching captains, so they know their ways on boats and how to steer them pleasantly across the sea and around the animals.
Our guides have excellent wildlife and nature knowledge and are more than happy to share information and their experience with our guests. Please do not hesitate to ask the crew questions during the tour.
Salka Whale Watching follows IceWhale’s Code of Conduct for responsible whale. Our goal is that every passenger has sufficient space and feels comfortable on board, enjoys the wildlife and that the nature is impacted as little as possible
Our boat Fanney was built 1975 in Akureyri (Iceland). It has been beautifully renovated for the comfort of our passengers. You can enjoy the view outside on the deck or sit below deck in the warm and cozy cabin.
We offer you warm overalls and blankets to keep you nice and warm during the trip out at sea.
Safety is a top priority for us, and we take every possible precaution to guarantee a safe and enjoyable tour. Crew members have gone through STCW training from theMaritime Safety and Survival Training Centre. At the start of each tour, the crew will brief you on safety manners on board.
Our boat undergoes strict inspection in compliance with rules and regulations of theIcelandic Maritime Administration. Safety vests are available for all passengers to wear, but we require children who are 12 and younger to wear a safety vest at all times during the tour. Please see our : Timetable
