Ambassador Whale Watching Reviews
Sabíamos que podía no ser sencillo ver ballenas pero viendo la web y leyendo que llevan 2 veranos seguidos con un 100% de avistamientos de ballenas, nos dejamos llevar por la emoción ya que era una de... more »We knew it might not be easy to see whales but watching the web and reading that they have been two summers in a row with 100% whale sightings, we let ourselves be carried away by emotion as it was one of the greatest illusions of our trip to Iceland and we had canceled the a sight in Husavik for bad weather.

Would have been good if the whales had turned up! Nice boat, knowledgeable guide. Coffee etc available

You also get a warm overall, the cabin is heated and there are toilets on board.
