An incredible morning spent with Henrik and the Gentle Giants crew. The boat was in great shape and the captain was personable and got us close to the action quickly. We had a whales right next to the boat, and even one that slid under the boat (engine was off) and it was an absolutely magical experience. Both sides of the boat had plenty of action for photos etc. Henrik was great with the guests and had conversations with each group, not just a generic speech for the whole crowd. I highly recommend Gentle Giants, and especially in the small boats.
I simply loved it! Is my 3rd whale watching tour and I have to say is the first time I really enjoyed it. We were lucky to find a whale willing to play with us..we saw her 3 time from head to toe and really close. The boat is very fast, stable, it is perfect. Was out 2 times before with a normal boat and got sick because of the waves, did not believe I will return alive on shore :) and the only think I saw was a small tail of a whale too far away from the boat. Really recomment these guys and fast boat tours in general.
The tour started with watching puffins of which we saw a lot. After that we saw dolphins and two different whale species from up close. It was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this tour to others!
The highlight of our trip to Iceland. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride and saw a humpback whale many times. They did a great job and had an awesome boa ride around the bay before it was all done.
A great trip, whales up close, dolphins jumping around, and puffins swarming like bees. Thanks to the crew who really knew what they were doing!
