A bit disappointed as neither whales nor puffins were sighted and the weather was a bit rough. However you cant expect wild life to perform to request and maybe they were sheltering from the weather! The staff on the boat were excellent and there was lots of fresh air !

Dissapointed that we never saw any whales, but thats the chance you have to take!
But it was enjoyable

The idea and service were good but sadly the whales failed to appear.

Interesting tour. Although the weather was horrible, wet and very windy. It felt being on the set of a "perfect storm". The only highlight was watching people unable to control their sea sickness. No Whales or Puffins (apparently Puffins vanish after August)!!

This is not a good time of year to participate in this activity, the whales have left (might see a Minke) and the Puffins don't return till May. Therefore, if booking this activity, validate whether you'll be able to see anything that you want to see. On this tour, it was an extremely choppy sea, so many people became seasick. Therefore, if you don't have sea legs, be sure to take the medicine to prevent seasickness.

We may not be the best people to review this tour as we have done whale watching before in Maine. That being said this was disappointing because we saw very few whales (and certainly none of the huge ones in the brochures). The boat doesn't even go out far in ocean - you can always see surrounding land and there are quite a few boats around you at all times. Nice if you have never done whale tour before, but if you have and have seen whales - this is one you can skip.

We were out for 3 hours, but saw absolutely nothing. They did offer a voucher to go for free again within 2 years, but will probably not be going back to Iceland. Was extremely cold too-even indoors.
