We had a great day out in a fabulous country, unfortunately we only glimpsed at one minke whale, but the boat trip was great, we were very impressed that wet weather gear was provided on-board. The Gullfoss and Geysir tour was amazing, we saw so much in one afternoon, would have liked to spend more time at several of the locations, but we now have a very good Idea of what we would like to see on our next visit ! the guide was great, very knowledgeable with a good mix of jokes and banter

A very good trip, with good sightings of minke whales, dolphins and numerous bird species. Recommended!

I would have been happy to see a few puffins and a trip out to the bay but this was a most enjoyable trip. We saw dolphins and minkie whales as a bonus. The guide on the ship kept us informed of the local flora and fauna and his enthusiasm when we saw the dolpins made the day.
Organisation again was excellent.

It was wonderful, everyone was very friendly and informative, we ended up seeing at least 100 pilot whales and white sided dolphins. The puffins were pretty great too, i just wish they were closer up. (We went August 8-18, 2012)

Amazing. My wife spotted 5 whales me only 4 but I managed to capture one in a picture. The organization is so good and when on the boat they even give you a pill for seasickness! Well organized and on time.

Although we didn't see any whales, it was a great trip and the staff did their absolute best in the freezing cold!! Will be back again..

Ship did not get close enough to see puffins clearly. Lots of whales and dolphins. No transportation available back to city center or bus station.

A great day! A very relaxing afternoon excursion during our stay in Reykjavik. In the three hour tour, we saw several Minke whales and a few dolphins. We passed Puffin Island, though were only able to see them from a distance. Our guide was great at pointing out the whales, keeping everyone engaged, and pointing out the major landmarks as we sailed further out of the harbor. We passed Mount Esja, could spot the location of the Blue Lagoon, and passed the mountain that was the inspiration for Journey to the Center of the Earth. Truly a great day!

very good, informative and even managed to see whales and dolphins this time, did a tour with another company 2yrs ago but no whales actually nothing but seagulls.

The tour was very professionally organised and the crew of the ship could not have been any more helpful. Unfortunately, we only got one glimpse of a harbour porpoise but guess that's just luck of the draw! It can get quite rough out there, so if you are in any way prone to seasickness, I would highly recommend taking pills before travelling.

So, you're probably not going to see a whale leaping out of the water making a giant splash, nor a puffin close up like in the photo. You will see some backs with fins and lots of porpoise backs with fins closer up. If you are thinking Sea World in Florida then you have the wrong idea. However, this is a fun trip if you like boats and being at sea.
The tour guide is very enthusiastic "11 O'Clock MINKY WHALE!!!" and tells you a lot about whales and the area so you should be interested in this.
They offer free sea sickness tablets at the bar and unless you 100% know that you won't get sea sick then please take one as soon as you board as it can be very very choppy! Also make sure you have a strap for your camera as you will get thrown about! Saying that unless you have a "proper camera" with multi shot then there's not much point. Just enjoy the trip instead.
They offer you warm snow suits at the beginning so there is no need to be cold. Bring good gloves and proper shoes. There is an indoor lower deck with bar, middle deck with roof and open upper deck. Toilets on board are as to be expected of a boat.
They come around giving our blankets on the way home which is nice.
We saw two Minky backs and a collection of porpoise backs. It is exciting scanning the water looking for them. Like some cold wet version of "Where's Wally".
Didn't see puffins but it isn't the season. Don't expect too much Come back in the summer to go to Puffin Island.
So if you like boats and don't get sea sick then do this. If you want to see and meet animals then try a horse riding trip instead as this was awesome! If you have kids then just visit the zoo!

Great tour. Saw a pod of some 200 Pilot Whales.

No Puffins too early in the season.
Weather poor heavy rain, but did see pods of Minke Whales and the cruise staff are excellent, encouraging concervation in a nation that hunts whales for food.
