What You Can Expect
great trip got to see some minky and dolphins,my expectations were to high thought i would see a whale like in the trip photo,use their warm gear its brill we were like toast all day
Brilliant, the weather was kind to us and we saw two Minky Whales and also Dolphins, wrap up warm as it does get cold but a lovely trip.
had a great time did not see any whales but did see dolphins. the trip was very good , we were picked up on time no problems.
It's a must do when in Reykjavik.
The thing is you have to be in the front of the boat to see anything. The water was a bit too bumpy and even with the seasickness pill it's still a bit rough to move around the boat.
I was behind and to go all the way to the front without throwing up was too tough, sadly.
Luckily, because not everyone saw whales, they gave us a new ticket to collect whenever we're back in Reykjavik.
A rather disappointing trip as we didn't see any mammals apart from birds. They do not guarantee that you will see anything so we were well prepared not to see anything. The staff were very helpful and gave us all a free voucher for another trip, which compensated for the lack of viewing and wildlife. At least we had a boat trip of around three hours
Nice boat, helpful crew, lovely guide, but limited viewings-none of minke whale apparently spotted, dolphins only
Didn't see the whales however nice trip and gorgeous tour guide with amazing sense of humour
Paper work needed more details for the meeting arrangements. The van that picked us up had the wrong card on display so we were left checking every vehicle that arrived. We did not really see any whales, a brief glimpse of a minky whale. The boat was good and high speed with warm wet proof suits available. Good value and worth doing but viators need to improve the collection instructions and arrangements with the operators.
Time indication for pick up as inaccurate. We were told pick up noon, meant was however between noon and 12.45. We had to call once again to clarify. Crew did excellent in spite of the rough sea. Actually date was bad for whale watching as most big whales were already gone. We did only see a little bit of a mink whale.
