    Really enjoyed this trip! Great commentary and the safety/warm suits make for great photos! Saw plenty of minky whales and white nose dolphins! Would recommend!

    The weather was beautiful. We saw a few minke whales and dolphins. Our guide was a marine biologist so gave us expert knowledge on the different species. Excellent tour!

    We saw several whales but we were not close to them. This is a good trip for someone who has never seen a whale in the ocean, but maybe not so good for someone who has been on other tours that were closer to the whales.

    This was a fantastic whale watching tour. The boat was really comfortable. The staff on the boat were really kind and knowledgeable. The person tasked with directing our attention to whale sightings was really good and we saw loads of mink whales. Our 10 yr old daughter was with us, and the staff were really kind to her and she had a great time.

    Was Great!! Saw Minke Whales and many dolphins playing along side the boat.

    Great tour, the tour was combined with another local company so we were on a different I think bigger! boat due to the weather, it was a bit rough, but fine for us, they gave us an anti-sickness tablet ahead of the tour which for some people was needed! Regardless, very comfortable journey, the weather was rough, so harder to spot the whales, but we spotted a number of minke whales luckily! Was end of season though, so not as many as summer, but still great experience, whale watching in Iceland is a must! I can't wait to return!

    We did not manage to see any whale or dolphin due to rough sea. We knew it was a risk though. It is an experience though.

  • 11-Sep-2018

    It was a good experience seeing the dolphins and minke whale! Our guide was very informative and alerted us about the sightings for the dolphins and whale. The tour provided us with the appropriate gear and allowed us to be able to see the sea from the upper deck. They even provided us with sea sick pill for free. We wished though that we could have seen more of the whale not just it’s head and its back sticking out.

    Had an amazing time!! Everyone was very helpful and answered any questions that you had, I would do this again when I come back
