We actually saw some minky sp? whales, white nose dolphins and porpoises. I guess we got lucky. The trip was excellent. Edling did a very nice job on all aspects of the tour. Don't worry about dressing warmly because they provide full body suits that keep you dry and toasty, and you can always go into the boat if you are too cold.
Unfortunately, didn't see any whales but then nature is unpredictable. The tour company did offer everyone tickets valid for 2 years for another trip. Blue Lagoon was stunning and well worth a visit

We were able to see minke whales and dophins and it was a beautiful day. The blue lagoon was really fun, too.
We had a beautiful day on the water. The views of downtown Reykjavic and the surrounding nature are spectacular. We saw humpbacks and mink whales. The staff was fun and the boat was large enough. If you love water, this isn't to be missed.
Saw hump back whales feeding! Lovely warm suit so we could experience everything on deck and staff very helpful
The day was perfect! Awesome tours and well organized. A slight miscommunication on the bus pick up after whale watching but easily figured out.
Excellent boat crew and excursion. Saw three humpbacks WOW. Pick up and transfer on time
Very well organised tour. Had an amazing time and staff lovely! Highly recommended
Since these are wild animals, it's hard to predict if one will see them. We were treated to a great view of the bay area and an intro to Icelandic marine life, however.
The Blue Lagoon is well-worth the trip.
Amazing, great experience . Fantastic service. All on time. Instruction very clear. The whale watch was an incredible trip. Thank you to Megan and the whole crew for given us an amazing life experience .

Rough seas in mid-May, but we saw a number of whales and porpoises. Very convenient locations and easy travel between destinations.

Whale watching was a bit disappointing as we never actually saw any whales and it was not the time of the year for puffins. We did see some dolphins, but it was difficult to take photos. Thoroughly enjoyed Blue Lagoon. Such a stark contrast in temperature, being in your bikini walking to lagoon when it was 2 degrees outside and the lagoon was so warm and relaxing.
Too many people on boat. Couldn and #39;t get a good photo of whale because of crowding and being crushed! Blue lagoon good. Restaurant service left a lot to be desired. It was a birthday treat but nobody acknowledged this.
Whale watching was great....no humpback whales seen on our tour, but we did see a few minke whales and porpoises. Blue lagoon just had bad weather. It was quite miserable but I am sure on a better weather day it would be amazing. Facilities are wonderful.
Everything was as promised and the staff was excellent, just unfortunately the whales didn't cooperate this day! :
Although we didn't see any whales, it was an exciting trip and we did get to see some Dolphins. Well worth doing!
Excellent day tour of whale watching and blue lagoon but some chaos that was not explained in advance. The trip requires you to get in the bus that collects you, takes oyu to a bus depot for another comp,any where you exchange your voucher for a ticket, get on another bus to whale watching where you exchange your ticket for one of their tickets. Great whale watching trip and saw minke and humpback as well as dolphins as summer a good time. Back onto another bus to bus depot, to another bus to blue lagoon which you have to pay for separately and I advise you to do this ahead to time to save queues. Blue lagoon amazing. Back in another bus into town and then onto last bus of day to hotel. Other advice-take some lunch with you or buy at expensive Blue lagoon cafe as not enough time inbetween to stop anywhere else. Overall a great day out but coordination could be improved which is why it lost 1 star.
Did not really see any whales on boat trip, but obviously these are wild animals, and so this could never be guaranteed. The trip was generally well organised, but they ran out of the warm suits in all sizes except extra large which left my wife without one as she is only small. We had dressed expecting to be provided with a suit as it was listed as one of the items included in the price, and so it meant that we were not able to stay out on the top desk with the best views as she got too cold.
The Blue Lagoon was very enjoyable. Even though there were a lot of people there it was actually quite romantic for the two of us, and lovely and warm!
We were unlucky with the weather - but incredibly lucky to have seen a whale, surface and dive several times. Well organised, and a fab dual experience
Great to see some whales but the large ones migrate further north now that the ocean is warmer. They have over clothes for us to put on so all one needs to bring is hat and gloves. So we were totally comfortable.

Sea was very rough, free seasickness pills were handed out when we boarded the boat and unfortunately we saw no whales at all. We were offered a free return trip to compensate for this, which we didn't take up as we could not have fit it in to the remaining time we had in Iceland. I was seasick despite having taken the pills.
The Blue Lagoon was absolutely fantastic but be aware that the trip does not include the entrance fee to the bathing area. It was expensive, but worth every krona. Especially recommended is the waterfall, just like having a massage and wonderfully de-stressing. I recommend it.
