Great day with excellent crew - a glimpse of a minky whale but dolphins all around us for ages, fantastic sunrise and scenery.

We would rate this trip highly, very informative throughout the adventure... not just whales but all sedation I've learnt that word! . We went for a 3 hour trip but only saw porpoises so we were offered complimentary tickets for another excursion. We went the second time and saw so many minke whales that we felt outnumbered! Also white beaked dolphins , the odd puffin and northern gannets dive bombing into the water. Every effort was made to make sure we had sightings . Advice... do put on overalls even though you may feel warm in the harbour. Book your trip with day's to spare before you go home just in case you're unlucky first time!

I really enjoyed the trip and all the hospitality also. We saw a couple of whales and tail and head also. I must say it was very nice to listen our talented guide who was at least as excited as we tourists were, while we saw those giants. How cool is that!

This was a wonderful experience! Our group saw some whales a short distance from the harbor, which was unusual. We went out further and saw dolphins who put on a little show for us. We had great guides who gave us information along the way. We also appreciated that Elding is environmentally aware.

Really enjoyed the day. It was a bit rough but that only added to the experience. Sighted many whales but they didn't come out of the water high enough for a photo. Also saw many Puffins flying and floating on the water. A great experience.

We had a great tour! It's easy to find at the harbour, and everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. I loved that they offered overalls - we came right from the airport, so weren't exactly dressed appropriately for the tour. We were fortunate to have great weather and calm seas. And we saw lots of minke whales and a humpback! The guides shared lots of information about the whales, the ecosystem and the threats to their survival. My 14 year old daughter said this was the highlight of our trip to Iceland!

Easy to pock up tickets from harbour office, quick visit to shop/exhibition boat then down the gangway to the actual boat. 3 decks, lower one indoors, middle with a bit of shelter and the top with excellent visibility. 45 mins later we are chasing a humpback with a good guide/commentary helping us know where to look. Then a couple of dolphins, loads of birds and finally a minke whale. What more could you ask. Thoroughly professional. Don't be put off by the 'rough seas' signs in tour office windows. Unless you are highly susceptible I think they just have to put these up most days anyway. They do give out free tablets beforehand if you are worried.

Excellent experience from before we arrived to the end of the tour!

Our flight on a budget airline, to Iceland, was postponed for 14 hours, which meant we missed the tour on the day we were to arrive in Iceland. I contacted them through Viator when I knew we would not make it on time. Viator arranged for us to attend the tour the next day. Thanks. The tour was great. We saw multiple whales from about 300 to 1,000 feet away. The tour guide was great at telling us the direction to look and how to anticipate where the whale might surface. Fun, educational, and unique experience. There is no guarantee that you will see whales like we did, but the crew will do all in their power to make it a successful experience.

The tour was very good and we managed to see some Whales!!!! We have been told from the beginning it may happen that might not see whales, which is totally understandable. However, we were very lucky to saw them in natural environmental. Amazing!!!!
The whole tour was very well organised- bar with hot drinks, blankets available for anyone who need it, special warm suits also available for people who want to stay outside at all the time, very knowledgeable staff, who gave us lots of information about whales, Iceland itself, culture and bit of history. Very interesting, beautiful views!!!! Highly recommended!!!!

This was a great trip, we saw lots of white bottle nose dolphins, a porpoise and a minky whale. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and there was good facilities on board.

Unfortunately, we didn and #39;t see any whales, but had a lovely boat ride. They gave us passes to come back that last two years. Thanks Elding, I hope to come back!

Even though we didn't see any whales, we did see several White Beak Dolphins. Whales were seen next day by guests from our hotel. The staff,the boat and the weather were all superb and came together for a very memorable trip.

This was a great tour! The staff was very kind, informative and fun! We didn't see any whales but quite a few white dolphins which came quite close from the boat, it was awesome! The sea was a bit agitated which, for me, made it even better!

Great trip. The tour guide gave interesting facts about the animals and location. Overalls and blankets provided for chilly folk. We saw minke, white beaked dolphins and porpoises. Fantastic views of the mountains and harbour as we travelled

We had a great tour on a very windy day. The seas were rough and we were given seasickness tablets as we boarded the boat. It was quite a long time before we saw anything but eventually a young Minke started checking us out. It circled us at very close range for a good 40 minutes and we all saw it very close up. All the facilities on the boat were great and the crew were very friendly. Highly recommended trip!

Fantastic, we saw 2 humpback whales together and a minke. The guide was quite good and I appreciated learning more about whales and how to protect them.

Really enjoyed our whale watch in early April. We saw six humpbacks and about 25 or so white-beaked dolphins. The staff were friendly and informative. Great trip - highly recommended!
