The boat was clean and nice, but a 3-4 hour boat ride to see one Minke whale (looks like a black dolphin) from a distance, and 3 dolphins. They should not run this tour in the summer when the whales are not around.
While visiting Iceland, a friend and I had booked these two tours. It was wonderful! We enjoyed the fast ride on the jet boat for puffins and the bigger boat for whales. The staff is exceptional and treat you great. They provide very warm suits...More

I joined the Reykjavík Whales in the Midnight Sun Tour one evening in August and it was a wonderful experience. We were very lucky with the weather so the scenery was absolutely beautiful and it was very cozy to watch the sunset out in the...More

We were blessed with a calm, sunny day and saw both white nosed dolphins and a minke whale (briefly). We stayed on the top deck for the entire trip and enjoyed the lovely views of Reykjavik and the surrounding mountains. Our guide was very well...More
