  • One of the best Whale Watching expeditions I have ever been on. The father and son duo made the experience even better. They were so kind and caring and knowledgable. A top 5 experience to do in Iceland for sure!
  • It was a wonderful experience and we were absolutely happy, that we choose this company. They have a very flexible and fast boat - so if they see a whale, they can easily get there very fast. Not like a big boat, who needs a lot of time to go to a spot. Also, the two men, who run the company and drive the boat are so kind and sympathic, and explain everything very well. We saw minsk whales, dolphins and even a humpback whale. One of my biggest dreams came true. I definately recommend this company ❤️
