Took 9pm express whale watching tour. Saw very many dolphins jumping from the sea and swimming. Also saw a whale from a distance. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Midnight sun was amazing. The sunset was so beautiful. I highly recommend.

Boat was in good condition and the staff were helpful, friendly and informative. When booking this tour I was sceptical we would see any whales, however we had more than 10 sightings of Minke whales and saw three Humpback whales and several harbour porpoises. Overall this trip was a really great way to spend an evening in Reykjavik

Seating was acceptably comfortable. Staff were friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, etc. Boat is clean, toilets clean and plentiful. We viewed minke whales, various species of dolphin, puffins,and got up close and personal with a humpback! Pilot handled boat expertly, so as not to startle the animals, as well as ensuring that the ride was as calm as possible. Snacks were a little pricey, but included sandwiches and real food, not just chips and candy.

What a magical way to spend the afternoon! We experienced multiple sightings of hump-backed whales with expert guidance from the crew. A truly memorable tour.

I would fully recommend this tour. We had such an amazing time the highlight of my trip and were lucky to see many different species of wildlife. We saw: porpoises, puffins, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and an orca killer whale! We were so so lucky to be able to see a killer whale in the wild, such a beautiful animal it made me cry! The guides were very informative, friendly and funny. When an animal was spotted they always made sure everybody could see and we all had great views from the front of the boat. Overall, I would fully recommend this trip. Thank you for making our trip to Iceland wonderful!

We saw Minke whales, Humpbacks, black Dolphins, blue dolphins and baby Dolphins. The staff on the boat were qualified in marine biology and very knowledgeable they were able to recognise species from a distance and give us a lot of background information on them.

The guide was really great, easy to understand and pointed out a lot of stuff. They kept us on the boat until we saw the humpback!

Strongly recommend booking through Viator for your special tours whale watching tour. The morning trip was cancelled due to weather so we'd been booked straight on to the afternoon tour which took place. We went out on a yacht so I am not sure we had drinks etc facilities or overalls but we stayed on the top deck throughout which was the best place to be. Even though it was cold we got a little wet with some big waves but we had a great show and it really was amazing seeing the whales. Departed promptly and back within the 3 hours as we'd had that great a show. Crew were great, told stories and gave info. Great tour, cannot fault.

The tour guide was humorous and informative and whenever wildlife was in the water he could clearly point out for everyone on board where to look. We had a very successful trip following a group of porpoises into a bay where then we saw three humpback whales. We were able to get very close to some of the most majestic creatures I have ever seen. I understand others who have done the tour did not have as much luck but I had an excellent experience. There was an option for thermal suits for those who were a bit colder but one the day I went, I didn't find the weather too bad at all.
Definitely worth a look if you're in Reykjavík!

Great trip, we managed to see about 5 humpback whales really close to the boat giving us a little show. There was lots of tail lifting, rolling under water and even a jump. During the tour the crew also provided lots of information regarding whales. I would be happy to go again and highly recommend.

The crew were very attentive and the information we were given was precise. Any one who wanted/needed a warm over suit was offered this as part of the trip, sea sickness pills also readily available. Of the four different boats in the ocean at the time, i really believe we had the best opportunity to see more than the others. We saw a pod of at least 10 dolphins, at least 6 humpback whales, 3 minke whales and also two other types native to the area. I took the trip with my 12 year old daughter and we both felt that the tour was professional and we really had fun.

This was an excellent tour, very professional and we were lucky enough to see two humpback whales. The crew were friendly and very helpful. The talk was informative and kept even the smallest children engaged. Would highly recommend this tour company.

Fabulous trip we were not expecting to see whales as friends had been and not seen any and another told us it was to early for whales to be present. How wrong were they we saw a mother and calf lots of tail lifting and spouting . We then saw 2 pods of dolphins also with their young these were actually spinning out of the water. Staff on board friendly and the crew were great at telling you where the whales were surfacing so you didn't miss them. Small shop on board to get hot drinks crisps etc. Would recommend

Fantastic trip. Very efficient. Lots of knowledge.

Due to the weather, we couldn't sail out of Reykjavik, but another harbour that's 20mins away. We were kept up to date and even offered a sea sickness pill if we wanted to take them.

Managed to see a humpback whale. Stunning. Crew very very good at helping us keep an eye on the whale and which side of the boat to look at. It's natures wonder, so you don't know if you are going to see it or not, but the crew do all they can to find a whale and keep it in sight. Fab worth every penny

This was a great afternoon out. We originally arranged for a transfer from our hotel but our previous excursion overran and we ended up making our own way to the harbour. That was easy to sort out, the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales but we did see a pod of porpoise. Wrap up warm though as it can get cold! Take full advantage of the coveralls provided too - they help keep you warm!!

100% thumbs up. The company was amazing, felt safe, great boat and great guides. We were Lucy enough to see both whales and dolphins but they clearly know what they are doing. I wanted to do again but couldn't fit in. Would go back just to go on this trip again
