Overall the tour was great! The guide was intelligent and explained everything clearly and well. My only complain would be that the overall tour felt a little rushed, maybe just not long enough. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Hi Jessica_Karen Thanks for the interest in our tours and I hope the following will cover your questions! If you're visiting in the end of April I'm afraid it's highly unlikely that we'll see puffins during the tours as they're usually only around from approx. the 15th of May to the 20th of August as they only stay on land or close to land in Iceland during their breeding season. We don't recommend the tours for anyone with for example back and knee problems and how rough the tour feels varies depending on the sea conditions, so it mainly just depends of the physical shape of the individual and if they'd be comfortable in sitting in our jockey like seats. The boats are smaller, closer to the weather as well as being open so they are more exposed to all sorts of weather and conditions out in the bay, therefore we never run tours in extreme conditions and cancel tours if sea conditions are rough. We do our best to inform our guests regarding the weather conditions especially if we think the sea might feel rough and if the tour is cancelled you're of course entitled to a full refund for your cancelled tour. If the sea conditions are on the rougher side and we're still able to proceed with the tour we often give people the option to reschedule or cancel if they don't feel comfortable with participating. But as I mentioned earlier the tour is not recommended for those with back or knee injuries and if the conditions are not favourable we cancel the tours. In the end of April you might see Minke Whales, White Beaked Dolphins, Humpbacks and/or Harbour Porpoises along with a variety of sea birds. All the best, Halla Whale Safari
