    The whale watching on 30th October 2019 was disappointing as there is only one whale which you see again and again diving in and out of water. Not fun at all. They dint tell people about it and we went with more expectation.

    Dear mipa24, Thank you for sharing your experience with future travellers. Sorry to hear your expectations were not met and that you were disappointed with the sightings. Since this is a wildlife tour, we never know what to expect; where we will find whales (if any) and for how long we will see them. That is the unpredictable factor of the tour. Hope you still enjoyed seeing the amazing wildlife of the fjord. All the best, The Akureyri Whale Watching team

    We did this trip as an excursion booked through our cruise. We saw humpback and minke whales and learned a lot about them from the great guide. We mostly stayed inside the cabin to keep warm, but when the flukes came out we stayed outside. Many folks did use the overalls and

    I was made to feel extremely welcome when i first arrived. I filled in my form and was shown how to put on the survival suit ( which keeps you so warm and snug) lifejacket, gloves and googles. We went out to the rib boat and within 25 minutes we had spotted a humpback 🐳😱.

    We were promised that there was a good chance to see whales but no guarantees and we were lucky to see a humpback - apparently on that day previous trips had the same luck. This was a fantastic 3 hour trip which we truly enjoyed aboard one of the three company boats. We were
