There are several election observation providers in Reykjavik. However, we were very satisfied with our choice, as we were able to postpone the appointment several times without any problems due to bad weather (storm). When we were finally able to start, we both had the feeling that the participants actually wanted to be able to see them and that the welfare of the animals was being taken care of. Up close, we saw that other tour operators came dangerously close to the choice. This was not the case with us and we were still able to take great photos. But be careful, the ship sways heavily due to turning maneuvers. If you are seasick, you should take one of the free anti-nausea pills before leaving.
Unfortunately we didn't get to see any whales but it didn't stop us from enjoying the tour. The crew were amazing and being on a boat tour with only a small group was so enjoyable. The only reason we weren't able to see whales was due to a weather warning however the tour was still so fun. And seeing Reykjavík early in the morning from a yacht was absolutely fab! Due to not seeing any whales we were given a full refund but we cannot wait to make another trip to Iceland to do the tour again and we will definitely book with the same people because of how relaxing it was! Speaking to other tourists they did get to see whales even though its out of season, we just didn't get lucky on our day!
The crew was lovely, they emailed to change the time of our trip due to bad weather coming in. Instead of a afternoon trip, we went morning instead. The captain took us out where the whales had been last spotted and we got to see three humpbacks, it was an amazing experience. The sea was quite choppy on the way back, I would definitely recommend booking for the experience of seeing the whales.
Got to see 3 humpback whales. The guide was really good and funny. The experience as a whole was really good, the yacht was amazing.
Nice boat and very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Saw a humpback and dolphins.
