I wandered in to the office and asked if they thought there was much chance of seeing whales that day. I was drily informed by a guide that the probability was between 99-100% so I booked and am so glad I did! We saw lots of minke whales and humpbacks, with some of the humpbacks coming very close to us. The captain was very good at anticipating where the whales were heading so it wasn't like the boat was chasing them. The commentary was informative and we had lots of opportunities to observe the whales. The scenery along the fjord was also lovely so that was a bonus.

Today we went on their last whale watching trip of the year, they end now until next Spring. And what a way to finish! We saw minke and humpbacks playing and diving no more than 5 metres from our boat. For over an hour we watched and photographed these amazing creatures, seemingly oblivious to us being there. I bet they knew very well though! The commentary was very informative, plenty of seats and open viewing areas, also enclosed warmer inside areas with hot and cold drinks and snacks for sale. This was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. Highly recommended.

Me and my friend went on a whale watching tour with Ambassador in October and it was amazing. We saw 12 whales and there were 3 humpbacks together that came really close to the boat. The guide was very informative and the scenery there is so beautiful!

Took this whale watching cruise on a beautiful sunny afternoon--saw seven different humpbacks over and over and over-- and it was one of the best whale watching cruises we have ever taken. The captain was great at quietly drawing near so we got very close looks. This trip was just wonderful.
