Travelled with young kids and they had a great time. We took this tour in July during a bright and warm summer day. Icebergs were magnificent. The captain and is mate took their time to explain the icebergs and the region. Great tour!

We were very fortunate to get to see a huge iceberg that had just broken off. It was an awesome sight. Our guide was the owner & he was informative & able to answer any questions we threw at him.

We got there late in the season but were lucky to see some big icebergs. It was a beautiful morning and the tour was great. I highly recommend taking this tour. The staff are all very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.

There is a site that tracks icebergs via satellite or ambassadors called icebergfinder. So you could probably make an informed decision before you take a boat tour to see icebergs.
