My husband and I did the speed boat tour on our honeymoon, and we had a fantastic time! We saw harbor porpoises, minke whales, and humpbacks so close that they sprayed water on us. Our guide Mary was knowledgeable and fun to have with us. I would highly recommend this your for anyone who loves beautiful views and marine life!

I am so pleased we did this tour. Our experience was very good from the time we walked through the door seeking advice to the moment we stepped of the rib.
The views were amazing. To be so close to these wonderful mammals was such a privilege.
The guide Steph was brilliant too.

A truly wonderful experience.

The cost for 2 adults on the rib was approx £280.

Our experience with Ambassador was great.
The staff were friendly and helpful; we saw four humpback whales during our time on the water and I have to admit I was as giddy as a toddler; the boat (ship?) was clean...although it was expensive, it was worth the money.

We could not keep count on the many whales we saw, so close up that I felt like I could just reach out my hand and touch them. What an amazing experience. We were on a high speed boat so we could just follow the whales and get up very close again and again. We also saw the warmest waterfall in Europe. Excellent trip with nice details in addition to the main purpose of seeing whales. Beautiful view of the mountains surrounding the fjord.

Well worth venturing out in the cold temperatures and under overcast skies.

You need to be up close to these incredible creatures to understand how special they are...our fellow mammals, no less. Crew member Anna's factual information was exceeded only by her charm.

Memorable and frankly, a ton of fun!
