Visitor Centre

Come and visit us!

Our brand new Visitor Centre located in Vestmannaeyjar Harbour is opening in April 2019 and houses:

  • Our native species aquarium allowing you to get up close to the other animals that share the belugas’ new home
  • Our puffin rescue centre – learn all about these amazing birds that inhabit the Vestmannaeyjar islands and hear about how we, along with the islanders, are helping to protect them
  • The story of the Sanctuary and its resident beluga whales – learn all about why Heimaey is home to the belugas through interactive displays and information

Klettsvik Bay

Klettsvik Bay is across the harbour from our Visitor Centre and is the new home for the resident belugas. During the summer months, we run carefully managed boat trips to visit the bay from Vestmannaeyjar Harbour which allows you to view the belugas home from a discreet distance.
