Great service, great tour!
We were travelling in Iceland, and found this company when browsing on our phone. We had no means to pay for the tour online, so we sent an e-mail instead. We quickly received a reply, saying the tour was booked for us and that we could pay on site. The day itself we had issues finding the place (no internet connection) but had a few calls with the crew, who assured us they would wait. The tour itself was also great, we spotted several whales, some of them really close. Captain Ragnar and especially our ‘tour guide’ Jonathan provided a lot of information and entertainment!

Great Tour
The tour lasted about three hours, was led by a Marine Biologist who identified all kinds of critters along the way. The guide told us what bit of land we were looking at, including some features of the area.The boat had many vantage points from two decks, with the lower deck being protected from weather. There were both seated and standing options. Friendly crew, warm coffee served.
We saw many types of birds, and a couple of humpback whales. I highly recommend this tour if you have a few hours of time to spend in the area. If you do go on this tour, bring layers of warm clothing and even rain gear, as it is colder over the water and you may encounter rain and/or sea spray.

whale Watching in Iceland

The tour was excellent, they had a marine biologist who gave a lot of information that was appropriate for the tour. The boat was comfortable, lots of places to sit and many places to have a good view of the whales. The crew did a very good job.

Wonderful trip into the fjord. It was like the whales were programmed. Three swimming side by side alongside boat with another breaching in the distance. Ragnar and his crew were marvelous in spite of the inclement weather. But like Florida, if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes, it will change and mostly for the good. Marvelous Trip.

Excellent Whale Tour
Aug 2019
My family and I very much enjoyed this wildlife tour. Unfortunately it was too late for seeing the sea birds and we did not see any seals either, but we did see 5 humpback whales - 3 of them from very close up. The whole staff, including Justin the whale expert, were very helpful and informative. Go on this trip!

Amazing whale watching tour on the bay or djupid like the locals call it!
Aug 2018 • Family
We took this tour with Amazing Westfjords to see some humpback whales. We found the site for the company online and booked tickets easily. You can also buy tickets on site. Anyway, the boat was very clean and had nice bright restrooms which is uncommon for boats I find. The boat also has a few decks where you can stand or sit and enjoy the boat ride out to the bay. We where very lucky and saw whales almost right away and what a sight! I was truly amazed how up close we could get to see them and how magnificent the whales are.
We also saw puffins and some other birds, but the whales got my full attention. We had at least 5-6 whales playing around us in the see. Splashing around, diving and disappearing to pop up again few minutes later. I just loved everything about this trip and recommend it highly.
