The day was kind of overcast, but not too cold. We saw dolphins and many whales. The highlight of the trip was to see a humpback whale breach. While I was not in a position to get a picture, just seeing it happen was amazing. Overall the trip was a total success.
we saw quite a few whales, and our ship commentator gave clear info whenever there was anything to see. money well spent.
Crew and boat were very good. Our guide on spotting the whales and info on them was very knowledgeable, with a great Scottish lilt to make listening easy, as well as easy on the eyes. We saw dolphins, minke whales and even a humpback. The day was gray but ideal for whale watching. We have whale watched in So. California and this was definitely worth it. Beautiful even when overcast.
The company that Viator use were fantastic. They took us out to sea where we saw numerous Humpbacks one Minke Whale and lots of Puffins and Artic Turns. They showed consideration for the animals but still allowed us great photo opportunities.
The young lady who commentated throughout was very informative, this just enhanced the trip.
Great tour. Weather was great, Scenery was great. Our boat tour guides were very professional and very conscious of finding whales for the tourists.
Prachtig, echt een ervaring. We hebben 4 walvissen gezien. We deden de toer van 2.5 uur met kinderen van 7 en 10 jaar oud. Hele goede uitleg van de bioloog aan boord. Aanrader
Jeg havde en oplevelsesrig tur på havet, hvor vi så vågehvaler og masser af delfiner.
Informativ besætning, og en skipper der sejlede respektfuldt ift. hvalerne.
Fin information om hvaler and #34;under dækket and #34;, da vi havde kurs tilbage mod havnen igen.
Kan roligt anbefale denne tur.
Good guide and a very nice trip with about 30 min. watching a humback whale at close range.
We did see some whales diving down , some dorsal fins - very exciting. We were very lucky with the weather it was a warm (for Iceland) day with plenty of sun.
Host answered my telephone call telling him our arrival from the airport was late and we were walking to the boat. He guided us there in time for the outing
The on-board guide was well spoken and accessible for questions. A beautiful voyage.
Saw loads of humpback whales, it was beautiful and cold - bring a sweater

Although wet with a fair amount of rain nothing can disappoint the sight of seeing Minke whales in the ocean, would do this again if I ever visit Iceland again. I'm one of those people never say never, although I picked up from the tour guide that there are different times of year better than others so if going check the best times of year.
Took 9pm express whale watching tour. Saw very many dolphins jumping from the sea and swimming. Also saw a whale from a distance. The crew was very friendly and helpful. Midnight sun was amazing. The sunset was so beautiful. I highly recommend.
Boat was in good condition and the staff were helpful, friendly and informative. When booking this tour I was sceptical we would see any whales, however we had more than 10 sightings of Minke whales and saw three Humpback whales and several harbour porpoises. Overall this trip was a really great way to spend an evening in Reykjavik
obviously it is hit and miss if you see anything but we were lucky enough to see a humpback whale which we stayed with for a long time. saw some dolphins too!
This was absolutely fantastic sea was calm sun was out we saw humpbacks, Dolphins, harbour porpoise puffins .one humpback came within 6 foot of the boat. A really great tour guide, refreshments on board reasonably priced I would recommend it to anyone
Seating was acceptably comfortable. Staff were friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, etc. Boat is clean, toilets clean and plentiful. We viewed minke whales, various species of dolphin, puffins,and got up close and personal with a humpback! Pilot handled boat expertly, so as not to startle the animals, as well as ensuring that the ride was as calm as possible. Snacks were a little pricey, but included sandwiches and real food, not just chips and candy.
What a magical way to spend the afternoon! We experienced multiple sightings of hump-backed whales with expert guidance from the crew. A truly memorable tour.
I would fully recommend this tour. We had such an amazing time the highlight of my trip and were lucky to see many different species of wildlife. We saw: porpoises, puffins, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and an orca killer whale! We were so so lucky to be able to see a killer whale in the wild, such a beautiful animal it made me cry! The guides were very informative, friendly and funny. When an animal was spotted they always made sure everybody could see and we all had great views from the front of the boat. Overall, I would fully recommend this trip. Thank you for making our trip to Iceland wonderful!
We saw Minke whales, Humpbacks, black Dolphins, blue dolphins and baby Dolphins. The staff on the boat were qualified in marine biology and very knowledgeable they were able to recognise species from a distance and give us a lot of background information on them.
