The guides were friendly and very informative. I really enjoyed the talk about whales and showing us of the vertebrae of various types of whales which puts into perspective the size of them and the dangers of whaling. It was a shame we didn't get to see any whales however we are able to book another day free of charge. Facilities were also good- there were warm overalls and anti sickness tablets available though the sea was relatively calm when we went.

Amazing tour! Went in late feb so we didn’t expect to see much as it is not the prime time for whales, but we saw the first 2 Humpback whales of 2020! Amazing experience. Guides were great! Very knowledgeable, even allowed us to stay out a bit longer to take more videos of the whales. Overall, amazing experience, highlight of our trip to Iceland!

All staff members were helpful and kind. Despite not seeing any dolphins or whales on our first trip it was still an amazing day. My son loved looking at all the information on the lower deck too. Would highly recommend. Also take some sunscreen between the sun and sea we got a little sun on our cheeks.

It was very good. The seas were very rough but it was not bad at all. Great captain who drove/sailed the boat well. We didn't see any whales but we can go again. We enjoyed the narrator and was very informative. The drinks and snacks were priced ok.

Well executed trip- recommended the free suits they provide and taking the free anti-sickness pill beforehand. Amazing trip, lots of information provided by the host and plenty of freedom To move around the ship
