My tour was last year but I didn't want to fail to add my positive review. The tour is longer than the competitor's tours and we saw lots of whales as well as a seal or sea lion. We sat on front with our warm clothes and the Norwegian survival suits and enjoyed it immensely. We've been whale watching in multiple places and this trip matches well with all of them.
Loved it! We took the afternoon tour spent the morning walking around the shopping district. User friendly no vehicles.
The whale watch was so much fun. We saw several youthful whales 3 or four were having fun hanging out with each other. Our Captain, tour guide and crew were fantastic, friendly, professional,and so informative. Do make use of the coveralls they will reall keep you comfortable.
Iceland does not have the same restrictions as many countries however,our Captain was very aware of the locations of the whales and kept a very respectful distance close but mot threatening. We got lots of great photos.
I recommend this tour company highly. Go, have a great experience and fun!
As we were on a cruise ship we were a bit concerned how we would find the boat for the trip. We shouldn't have worried, the office was few hundred yards away from where the cruise ship docked. A good idea is to arrive about 1/2 hour before the sailing time to ensure you can get a good seat up top. We had warm clothing on but still took advantage of the suits they supply on board. The crew member guide was extremely good and was on the look out for whales constantly. We were very lucky to have many sightings on our trip. Other passengers had gone on a trip with the same company the day before in Reykjavik and had not seen any whales. The company allow you to go again at no cost if this happens. It was a 3 hour trip and excellent value.
The tour was a lot of fun. There were actually only a handful of people on the boat so that made it especially nice. The crew was friendly and informative, and they seemed to know where in the fjord to go. My only disappointment was the fact that we only saw two whales and no dolphins, and the boat seemed to stay in one place too long to enable further sightings.
It was a wonderful trip with exciting, memorable sightings of whales. The trip leaders gave lots of interesting information which added to the wonder. we were lucky enough to see about 13 whales. My advice is do not be so intent in getting the best photos as you can be so busy taking pictures that you miss the full impact of the sight of the whales and their magnificent movements.
