Very low quality tour experience. We did not see any whale or any dolphin but that s not all. The tour is very long (3.5 hours), looks like a ferry trip (no stop, very low interaction, just a non stop full gas loop around an island ) and not interesting (oral comments at the microphone on a old factory and a village but you stay very far from the coast so you don't see anything). For sure it must have been better if we had seen any whale but, anyway, for me it does not worth the very high price as the cruise is not very pleasant. In the end we had a voucher to do it again within 2 years - not sure at all we would do it again even if we had the opportunity to do it.

Tour gor canceled the day before for insufficient booking. We still got a refund so at least they are sincere.

Really enjoyed our whale watching trip! We were able to see several humpback whales. The staff was very friendly and informative. They provided warm “jumpsuits” for us along with hot beverages. I would recommend this tour!

The whale watching trip was some 3hours and we saw some whales. The guide told us alot about the sealife here. Boat was good. They told us there were some blankets, raincoats and overalls, but we found them a bit too late. It was really cold. Over all the experiense was good.

It was really disaponting that we saw no whales. We started from Darvik for a better chance to see them with no luck. There were people on second try to see them with no success. I wound't try it again.

Dear Laura T, Sorry to hear that the tour and services did not meet your expectations. In order to give our passengers a better chance of wildlife spotting, we sometimes offer a FREE transfer to Dalvík. Unfortunately it seems that this time it did not pay off sightings wise. We cannot control the wildlife in our waters and sightings are out of our control. We do try our very best and cooperate with other boats in the area for optimal chance, but sometimes we're just out of luck.. Hopefully you'll find the time to try again. This is a wildlife tour and therefore sightings are unpredictable and vary from tour to tour. All the best, The Akureyri Whale Watching team
