If you can see whales in these pictures you can believe it. The entire tour you keep looking out for whales and the boat runs to be upclose . It was too much fun . Do try doing if you have a day.

I still can't believe how many whales we saw in 2 hours. I've never had such a full whale watching experience. We saw tons of birds, dolphins and at least 4 whales. One of our favorite experiences in Iceland. The only downside (for me) was...More
Whale watching is something that everyone must experience when coming to Húsavík. We went on Saturday morning at 8:45 o´clock which is a great timing and a good start to the day. The staff are extremely welcoming. This was about a 2 hour tour and...More

Brilliant trip. saw lots of humpback whales. Really small boat so easy to see. Great guide who was very informative. We were given really warm comfy suits to wear. A must if you love whales

Zodiac style whaling adventure. May have dressed with too many layers- by the time we added the overalls we had difficulty moving- but we were warm... We saw dolphin and about 15 humpback whales. Puffin seen from afar as water too shallow to approach Island....More
Thank you for the nice review. The captain does his best to ensure equal viewing of the whales from all seats on the boat, but with wild animals this can be tricky! It sounds like you had a very successful RIB zodiac tour with dolphins...More
I found Gentle Giants a very good tour operator. The boat was in perfect condition and you get equipped with a safety overall, life jacket, waterproof gloves and goggles. One tip : don't put anything, like your camera, in your pockets that you later need...More

Dear Conrad P, Thank you for the very nice review! Great to hear that you had a fun trip with an experienced captain. It is definitely cold here in Iceland even in the summer time, so extra warm clothing is always a good idea as...More
