Unfortunately we did not see any whales, but we saw some dolphins. We knew upfront there is a slim chance to see whales, but they could rename the tour to "Wildlife Watching" instead of Whale Watching

No Wales unfortunatly

Bonne balade en mer, personnel attentif et aux petits soins de ses passagers. Malheureusement pas de baleines ce jour là mais c'est une raison pour revenir en Islande une autre fois.

Brilliant guide, great boat, skillful captain. However no one serving at the bar and the waterproof suits were a bit worn and smelly.

The captain stopped the boat when the whale was near to us, trying to follow slowly the animal

Would do it again!

We saw humpbackwhales and even Somerset orcas! I loved the tour! Unfortunatly we had to do a 1h bustrip in a very crowded bus from the harbor to the actual boat. That was the only negative point.
