  • The weather wasn't perfect so we expected not to meet many whales. However, we got to see a couple who were still there! The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable.  more »

  • Good company, at Akureyri and Reykjavik. Nice staff. I recommend.
  • We saw a humpback whale it was only a small one but we saw a whale fantastic it was the iceing on the cake from our trip to Iceland. If you go on the tour make sure you wear lots of clothing
  • Fun experience on this sea exploration adventure to sea the titans of the ocean. I was lucky to sea one on this trip. The whale was nicknamed Jackson. Jackson was particularly shy on this day, but Jackson did make 3-4 appearances and dove back down to feast. Apart from the whales, the sights of the mountains in the distance and seagulls in full glide next to the boat was a very surreal experience. I would definitely do it again.
  • Awesome experience. Large boat which doesn't chase the whales around like the smaller, quicker boats do so you don't get right up close but this means you don't feel like you are harassing the whales. Saw 7 or 8 humpbacks (3rd week of October).
  • Amazing experience! Great staff with lots of knowledge! Very personable! Did the Express and got SO CLOSE to the whales! Happy to hear how committed they are to respecting the whales and their habitats while balancing guest experience!
