4 star rating: Recommended November 2015

unfortunately we didn't see any whales but the trip was great.


3 star rating: Worth doing May 2016

Horse riding a ton of fun - guides were great : Whale watching started off great.. wish weather would have held up, but the staff on the boat entertained as much as they could - very funny and pleasant

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2015

While I understand that seeing whales is under nobody's control, we didn't see any wildlife. While we were in Reykjavik a local asked if this trip was sold as a whale watching tour. When we said yes, they were completely surprised since it was not whale watching season.
