What our customers are saying about this tour

"Great whale watching tour from Dalvik"


We went for a whale watching tour from Dalvik. The weather was amazing! Unfortunately the waves were a bit rough because we had to sail a bit our of the fjord. Therefore it took a little while before we saw the first whale (a massive fin whale), but we were not disappointed because it kept circling around the boat, so we got to see a lot of it! we had a great day! :)

"Best Whale Watching Experience Ever"


The tour was well organized and efficiently run. We saw perhaps 20 Humpbacks and two Minkes very close to the boat. It was one of the highlights of our tour of Iceland

"Fantastic whale watching"


We had an amazing trip with this group seeing dozens of humpback whales close to the boat as well as some dolphins. The guys were really good with finding the whales and giving us information.

"Does not disappoint!"


This is a must do when travelling to Iceland. We landed on this tour after alot of research. The small groups and warm clothing sealed the deal when we were deciding. I am so glad we chose as we did. The guide and captain put us on whales quickly and allowed us to watch them in their natural habitat. Highly recommended!
