What people are saying about Reykjavik

Fantastic whale watching. Puffins were ok...

Overall we had a great time! The whale watching was fantastic. We saw several different types of whales. We also got right in the middle of a pod of dolphins that decided to jump and play around the boat! Fantastic. The puffin tour was OK. Our guide was fantastic - a super enthusiastic marine biology. She made the trip! Unfortunately, the boat couldn’t get very close to the birds and they were hard to see even with the binoculars. We had a good time, but I’m not sure I would do it again.

Absolutely superb, the crew were brilliant.

Absolutely superb activity, the crew were phenomenal and helped with any enquiries. The boat was extremely comfortable even during the rougher weather. On board facilities were excellent including the lovely warming hot chocolate. The whale spotter was brilliant guiding us as to what to look for and where to look next. An excellent activity that I would undertake again. The whales were stunning as well.

Faster TO the Whales is definitely Better!

I've only been on two whale watching tours. But this boat - BIG so steady - but FAST so not wasting time getting to the whales, made al the difference. Options for everybody - inside, outside, top, front, back! They had warm waterproof gear for everyone too, but even with various size options they were bulky. I had brought my own snow board pants and a winter coat, which worked really well for me.

Whale Watching Express: 2-Hour Tour from Reykjavik Reviewed by Heather, 07/03/2019

Good service but prob not worth doing ...

Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable,,, the puffin tour was amazing , I was able to see lots of puffins. The whale tour was well organized and they provide you overalls since it can get really cold, however nature is unpredictable and we were only able to see one or two fins in the 3 hours. It was a good ride but would probably not recommend if you have limited time in Iceland.

Excellent boat, excellent tour guides, and a wonderful experience

We brought kids on the boat. The day was rainy and we were concerned that they would not like the experience, but the warm, dry cabin was perfect. The wifi access kept them busy until we reached the whale watching area. We saw a beautiful minke whale and lots of bird life. The guide gave a great narration of everything around us, and it was great. I highly recommend.
