Very interesting and informative experience.
The staff on the boat were very friendly and the trip worthwhile. Would recommend.
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
We went the last week of august and were able to see a humpback, several mink whales, 2 puffins, and 2 schools of dolphins! It was also very nice to have refreshments on board. Highly recommend! Just make sure to bring a proper wind jacket and warm clothes!
Amazing experience as the boat swung this way and that reacting to sightings.
We saw dolphins and a humpback whale. A great experience for the family.
Loved this tour! We saw 2 different types of whales and they provided special suits for us to wear as it was quite cold out on the water. It was easy to find the place and checking in was no problem. Would definitely recommend!
I got really lucky with the weather and it was sunny and clear blue skies which made the trip go pretty smoothly. I did see some whales and even if I hadn't seen any, the trip would have been nice enough because of the views. I recommend putting on the complimentary coveralls, as it can get pretty cold out there.
Amazing! Saw at least one whale every 5 minutes. Boat was very spacious and crew was very knowledgeable.
Even though we weren't able to watch any whales, the tour was great. It was a unique experience with a fantastic view of Reykjavik. The boat crew was extremely friendly and very attentive of everyone.
I ended up not taking the tour because of weather conditions, but the company offered me either to request a reimbursement via Viator or to join another tour. I took another tour they offered and all was fine!
Again, This tour was cheaper booking with this company, than going direct!!! Great experience and if you dont get to see and whale's etc they (local compnay) will let u re-book for free of charge. What more could you ask for..
Very friendly and professional staff. Although no whales seen, plenty of Dolphins and sea birds. Very enjoyable
Unfortunately this tour was cancelled due to bad weather. Company telephoned well in advanced to let us know and even contacted the hotel. Was told we could reschedule but unfortunately we had other things planned. However was informed to email viator who we booked with for a full. refund.
Great experience. Managed to spot a group of killer whales. Well looked after by the crew. Would definitely recommend.
This was an amazing experience - we only saw one Minke whale but we also saw a basking Shark and several Dolphins. The crew and the commentary were both very good, the commentary being constant, so we knew what was what and where we were going; and the crew took the boat to where they thought there was activity and were clearly actively seeking out Whales for us to view. The boat was clean and comfortable, you could get a coffee or a tea, they had good wet gear that we could use (and we did) it kept us dry and warm and had pockets too so we were able to pop our cameras out of harms if needed! There were enough toilets too. Everyone was friendly and at the end the trip the young lady who was giving the commentary came round and showed us a couple of things and asked if we had any questions. My only regret is that would could not have stayed at sea for another couple of hours. Amazing.
The cruise was very good , the guide was trying his best that we will see as much whales as possible
happy we saw plenty of whales and some porpoises. obviously would have liked to see more. guide was good and made it interesting.
We were lucky, we saw whales and dolphins, the crew were all knowledgeable and knew how to make sure we got the most from the trip, the overall they supplied were a welcome protection from the Icelandic winds,if you like wildlife a recommend trip.
The main guide was very active and obviously new her stuff happy to talk individually to you through out the trip. We were lucky enough to see a humpback which was so special.
Tommy our tour guide was friendly, entertaining, amusing and informative. The boat provided everything we needed to include lovely warm, weatherproof over suits. The refreshments were welcomed after a fabulous time watching hump backed wales, minkie wales and porpoise. A truly magical awesome and memorable trip. Would highly recommend!
Saw three different types of sea mammals, Harbor Porpoise, Dolphin, and Humpback Whale. Nice ship, good crew and the provided overwear was warm and comfortable. plenty of room to get to railings and get your pictures. Was within 25 ft of humpback.
