A very good trip, with good sightings of minke whales, dolphins and numerous bird species. Recommended!
I would have been happy to see a few puffins and a trip out to the bay but this was a most enjoyable trip. We saw dolphins and minkie whales as a bonus. The guide on the ship kept us informed of the local flora and fauna and his enthusiasm when we saw the dolpins made the day.
Organisation again was excellent.
It was wonderful, everyone was very friendly and informative, we ended up seeing at least 100 pilot whales and white sided dolphins. The puffins were pretty great too, i just wish they were closer up. (We went August 8-18, 2012)
Wonderful crew, saw a few whales, dolphins, and loved the puffins. Highly recommended.
Saw a couple of Minki whales , dolphines, puffins, and harbor Porpoise
Amazing. My wife spotted 5 whales me only 4 but I managed to capture one in a picture. The organization is so good and when on the boat they even give you a pill for seasickness! Well organized and on time.
Although we didn't see any whales, it was a great trip and the staff did their absolute best in the freezing cold!! Will be back again..
Has to be done, but be wary if you are prone to seasickness. i'm not but there were a lot of sick people around me on a very sunny clear day. If in doubt take seasick tablets.
A brilliant tour - we got to see Minke whales, puffins and dolphins and the tour guide was very informative. We'd definitely recommend it!
Unfortunately I spent most of this trip with seasickness, which I have never experienced before. From what I could hear, we did have some sightings of minke whales. The guide was fantastic, and the lady behind the bar was extremely sweet to me as she knew how awful I felt. Even though I was so sick, I'm still giving it 5 stars because of how amazing the crew was.
We had a great time on this cruise! We saw a few whales and quite a few dolphins; the guide was quick to point them out and was very knowledgeable about all the marine life around Reykjavik. The puffins were super cute, that might have been my favorite part of the tour. Bring a jacket - it gets cold out on the boat!
Ship did not get close enough to see puffins clearly. Lots of whales and dolphins. No transportation available back to city center or bus station.
A great day! A very relaxing afternoon excursion during our stay in Reykjavik. In the three hour tour, we saw several Minke whales and a few dolphins. We passed Puffin Island, though were only able to see them from a distance. Our guide was great at pointing out the whales, keeping everyone engaged, and pointing out the major landmarks as we sailed further out of the harbor. We passed Mount Esja, could spot the location of the Blue Lagoon, and passed the mountain that was the inspiration for Journey to the Center of the Earth. Truly a great day!
