It was so much fun! We were well equipped with warm overalls, protective vests, gloves and glasses. The trip took a full two hours and we saw various dolphins and several humpback whales. The guide and captain were personable and went out of their way to ensure that we would see whales. Be careful if you have a sensitive stomach! The boat is fast and jumps over the waves, and it can rock quite a bit.

The best whale sightseeing tour of them all. The speedboats themselves are great fun jumping all over the waves. The equipment we were given kept us warm and dry. As the boats are smaller than the big ship, we could get closer to the whales. Iga, the tour guide was the best of the best. Top recommended

Excellent tour! Our guide Siggy shared so much fun information about puffins with us and made sure everyone was comfortable. Captain Frederic made sure that we had a fun ride on the speed boat. Nice fun, quick trip close to town. Definitely recommend for a nice afternoon activity during puffin season.

Amazing experience, highly recommend the fast boat even though the tour is shorter than with a regular boat. The small boat I s many times faster, so you get to cover a bigger area and have a bigger chance of seeing the whales from up close. It’s worth the extra money!

Iga and Jon made the trip exciting and unforgettable. You can tell right away that Iga loves the whales, she can tell a lot about them. Jon steered the boat safely, we had a lot of fun driving! And the best: we saw 2 humpback whales!
