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.
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
