Whale Watching Hjalteyri reviews
Don't believe all the "98%+ chance of seeing a whale" marketing. Ours counted as "seeing a whale" despite it being a tail (which most of us missed) for a split second about 1 mile away. Spent a lot.... more »
We chose North Sailing in Hjalteyri because we had watched a few of their whale watching trips from our accommodation directly across the fjord. We had also been on a previous whale watching trip... more »
We went out on what looked like rough seas but the ride was smooth and we saw so many humpback whales that at times you just couldn’t see them all. It was an amazing day and the crew was wonderful. more »
Absolutely loved this trip!!! Goosebumps all over; we saw 2 humpback whales for like 10 times and 1 minke whale. Awesome tour guide and a trip with few people makes it even more lovely.
We booked a tour here in September. Really a super nice team, top captain. There is a on-site parking space to park the car. In the small information house we were instructed and then received our suits for the tour (the suits keep you really super warm! Luckily, when driving it's really windy!) The ship was small and well maintained (a small ship is also much more likely than a large crowded one). We were around 10 people. Unfortunately, we had no luck with the weather-exactly a few days before the tour, polar winds came up-unfortunately we couldn't see whales as a result. Despite all this, the team really put a lot of effort into it. We also got a voucher for another trip-unfortunately we couldn't redeem it on our holiday, as the next few days came up with a severe storm and no ships were allowed to drive. That's why we like to come back. I only give 4 stars, because I find the price of the tour really a bit high. We have thought several times about whether we would even carry out such a tour. And then unfortunately were unlucky not to see whales. Of course, the team can't do anything about that either!
