Experience the best of both worlds on this tour combining whale watching with sailing between the huge icebergs in the amazing Ilulissat Icefjord, which since 2004 has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sailing with Ilulissat Water Taxi is a nice and easy way to get to some of the top attractions close to Ilulissat city. You book the trip and Water Taxi will pick you up on one of two spots at the harbor - just like a Yellow Cab.

In the summer the beautiful humpback whales travel the big oceans from Haiti and Puerto Rico heading straight to the Disko Bay. They come here to feed on the huge amounts of small fish and krill, they find in the fresh Greenlandic sea. The humpback whales are huge, beautiful mammals that you can see swim peacefully between the waves without making a sound. These giants can be up to 15 meters long and weight 30 tons.

On this tour there are biggest chances for spotting the humpback whales with their iconic tail waving as they dive into the sea. You might also be lucky to see Bowhead whales sometimes.

One thing that however is sure is that you will see the beautiful icebergs, that the area is known for and named after, as Ilulissat in Greenlandic means iceberg.
