We booked a Whale Watching tour with Reykjavik Sailors, despite the weather we managed to see a pod of dolphins. Jon and the crew were excellent, and really good at letting everyone know where to look etc. I would highly recommend Reykjavik Sailors. Make sure to wear the overalls they provide, it will keep you warm and dry!

These guys do not have the fastest boat - in fact, some of their competitors will look like F1 cars, passing you by in the open sea. Still, they know exactly what to do and where to go to get the best possible chance of seeing whales. Other boats went round and round in splashes, while we slowly yet

purposefully moved to the right place - and other boats turned up, after spending some time in the open sea for nothing.

My Fiancé and I went on the Whale Watching tour, last spring, and it was one of the most fascinating things we've ever done! At one point, we had a family of dolphins swimming and playing right next to the boat as we ventured out to spot the whales! It was like nothing either of us had experienced before. The crew was equal in satisfaction as they were all extremely knowledgeable about the animals, the landmarks, and anything in between. Every one of them took the time to introduce themselves and make fun and interesting conversation while still allowing for the privacy to take pictures and enjoy the moment. All was capped off with the sight of a huge whale, that came up for air towards the end of the trip! The crew didn't give us any false hope or illusions about the sighting of whales - essentially no one can 100% predict where and when a whale will pop up, but they promised they'd do their best to give us the full experience, and that they did!

Overall, fantastic time, provided by fantastic people! We will definitely return and recommend this activity for anyone living or visiting in the city!
