Incredible! We were lucky enough to see whales (humpbacks) every 3-5 minutes; they were amazing! The captain and crew were experts at spotting and then quickly getting as close as possible, at one point we were no more than 10 metres away from a whale diving. A member of staff spoke continuously through a speaker, alerting people to where the whales were and also giving a host of facts about the whales we were seeing. We were giving warm suits, a waterproof jacket and a hot chocolate & cinnabun. Overall, it was my wife and I's highlight of our Iceland honeymoon. Can't recommend enough!

We got to see 4 humpback whales and it was an amazing experience! The captain and the guide were very good and competent, we were provided with antifreeze suits and at the end of the tour we were given hot chocolate and a good cinnamon candy. Value for money in my opinion excellent! Highly recommended !!

Excellent ride in a scenic boat and a very friendly crew.
