“Don't do whale watching in Reykjavik”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Really, don't do it in Reykjavik, you'd better go to Husavik to see whales. We have only seen a couple of whales' backs, but had 3 hours of pure torture, the sea was really rough, a lot of people got sea sick, it was raining and windy and we stayed in all the trip. The price of 50 Euro is not supported by anything, I wouldn't do it again even if someone paid me 50 Euro. There are not many whales near Reykjavik, so do anything but whale watching, worst experience in Iceland.

“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Excellent whale watching tour!! Unfortunately the only tour during our stay when we actually missed the whales! But what a trip!!
June (or any other month) is not so warm, do use the overalls onboard... ! you'll enjoy the trip even more!
Gloves and warmhat is a good thing to bring with you!!:-) and the camera ofcourse!
And the sun just is just touching to horizon:-)
(we took the "night" tour (its still sunny at midnight!!) :-)
