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.

it was a nice trip on the boat from reykjavik harbour, but spotting a whale is down to your luck, its not 100% or even 50% sure you will see a whale in that 2 hours trip...if you dont get to see a whale tour operator will give you another voucher to try, but that does not guarantee either, so it's more of searching whale, if you find it you are lucky otherwise just a boat trip to the shore..

We only saw a tip of whale's spine. We did enjoy our tour guide and boat ride but you could see other passengers getting frustrated and queezy. The boat kept driving in circles chasing down a whale that barely surfaced once.
I recommend showing a real status of the tour. I was expecting to see what you advertise with this whale leaping out of the water. This did not meet our expectations.

quite disappointing. we saw a grand total of four (4) dolphins! Weather was rainy,damp and cold..the cover-alls were much appreciated. The boat had a full 'crew' of young people hoping to see whales,many of these folks became sick as the ship tossed and turned in the rough waters. There was no offer of a beverage as is listed in your tour bio. Finally we were informed that they used no sonar-radar devices to spot the whales merely relying on human sightings. I've been on several whale watch cruises before and thought this was a standard used by all boats offering this tour.
