5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Super ,dud see any whales but not for want of trying by the crew 3.5 hours looking. The added bonus of a visit to the whales of Iceland as a freebie was very much appreciated.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2016

Before booking this trip I read reviews and didn and #39;t really expect to see any whales as its out of season although I was hoping to. I think if I went back again I would give this trip a miss.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2015

Frankly, this tour was a disaster. The weather was quite rough, with high winds, big waves, and cold temperatures. This alone would not have been a problem, but we saw no wildlife on this trip. Admittedly, spotting a whale can be hit or miss but, after studying this more, I found out that the Reykjavik bay is relatively shallow for whales and, at best, you can hope to see Minke whales but no humpbacks. My wife and I had done a similar trip in Akureyri and there we spotted many humpbacks, possibly because of the greater depth of the bay in that part of Iceland.
