A local whale watching company is offering special prices for their tours, with all proceeds going to support relief efforts in Nepal.

Whale Safari has announced an event with the aim of helping the Himalayan country recover from the devastating earthquake that struck the country last Saturday, killing 5,000 and leaving countless more homeless.

“We at Whale Safari have teamed up with friends of Nepal to raise funds to help with rescue and relieve efforts in Nepal following the earthquake and the tragedies that now ravaged this warm and welcoming nation,” the announcement states. “This is a great chance for you to invite your boyfriend, girlfriend, mom, dad, wife, husband, brother, sister, daughter, son…well just about anyone you care for out for an incredible adventure. For a great cause!”

While normally a Whale Safari tour costs 15,000 ISK, they will now be charging a minimum of 5,000 ISK, with the caveat that “you can decide how much to pay (no maximum). All money raised will go direct to the rescue and relieve program in Nepal.”

A complete schedule of departure times and locations is available on the event page.
