Did not manage to see any whales but lots of dorsal fins spotted. Bundle up especially during winter. The weather is harsh.
Overall I believe this was a great overall animal friendly experience! You got an amazing overview of the coast off Reykjavik and the crew were absolutely amazing! We unfortunately did not see any sea life so we were given a rain check for another time. We personally were prepared for this as given the time we went end of November the chances were slim.
The boat ride was very choppy which they warn you ahead of time at the ticket desk but luckily they provide free nausea tabs that I highly recommend you take at least 20 minutes before setting off if you are like myself and get sea sick easily. They helped me greatly! I definitely plan on going back and rebooking!
We arrived in Iceland at 7:00 AM and took the excursion at 1:00 PM. They were on time in picking us up at our hotel, and the whole excursion was really good. We saw one whale and dozens of dolphins! It was a good way to spend the afternoon, and I would recommend this tour to anyone.
An excellent tour. I know it can't be guaranteed but we saw Minke Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises, what an experience. The crew were so friendly and knowledgeable and made the trip that extra bit special. Highly Recommended.
Well organised with a well informed guide. We saw harbour porpoises, dolphins, minke whale and a hump backed whale. Loved the experience and would thoroughly recommend.
very enjoyable afternoon whale watching we were lucky seeing minke and humpback whales as well as dolphins
The trip was excellent. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We were issued ideal warm gear to wear for the duration of the trip. The guide was informative and we saw a number of minke whales, albeit at a distance. A most enjoyable trip.
We really enjoyed this experience, the boat ride in itself was a novelty and we saw dolphins and whales when we were out, so it was a sucess. The tour guide was brilliant and very knowledgable about fish which was really motivating. We were picked up from our appartment and taken to the harbour and everything ran really smoothly. I would definitely recommend booking this tour through Viator and would put in on a' must do' list if visiting Iceland
Pick up was on time, boat was more than adequate, we sat inside as it was very chilly, plenty of good views even from inside, saw an number of whales, even stayed a bit late because a mom and calf were quite active, friendly and knowledgeable staff. In all, very much a good value.
Really pleased we got to see both a whale and several dophins on this trip. Also sea wasn't as rough as we expected.
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.
