  • 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. At last, we were going to see whales. See whales??? We hit almost 3 hours of boat and all we saw were the fins of 3 calderons at over 200m. When they appeared, the ship was accelerating and when we seemed to be nearby, they disappeared. Within half an hour, the boat was accelerating and when we arrived... disappeared again. The captain himself gave up and accelerated the march out to sea in search of luck, but nothing, all we saw was seagulls and a plastic cup at sea. Faces of people frozen and disappointed. I can't see that bleak image. Of course as we saw those 3 fins from afar... 100% of sightings are still intact. A huge disappointment and a 160o less.

  • Would have been good if the whales had turned up! Nice boat, knowledgeable guide. Coffee etc available
  • Wonderful experience! The staff is amazingly passionate about what they do. They didn't have sightings for five days so they were extremely keen on finding whales. We drove further out of the fjord (seasickness assured) and found a group of five to six and some dolphins. Absolutely worth it! You also get a warm overall, the cabin is heated and there are toilets on board.
