Great fun travelling to and from the best whale watching sites in the bay - speedy, bumpy and a little wet! Highly recommended.
The crew is very knowledgable, and moves the rib boat with an amazing speed to catch every opportunity to spot a dolphin or whale.

Salka Whale Watching Husavik
We got an incredible view and history of the puffins, dolphins, and humpback whales from the guide who was both knowledgeable and courteous.
The vessel is a gorgeous wooden boat and in the couple hours we were out we saw dolphins, porpoises, minkes and feeding humpback whales, plus tons of puffins, arctic terns, kittiwakes and some guillemots!!

Whale watching was amazing, Kids 11,15,18 loved it, staff fantastic, great boat, super warm overalls' provided, would highly recommend it, saw 3 whales very close up
I did whale watching in Reykjavik and Akureyri as well, judging from my experiences, the number of whales and dolphins is much more abundant in Husavik, so you have a much higher chance to see whales and dolphins...

North Sailing Husavik
Both sailing ships were fabulous and I got some amazing photos of humpback whales, white beaked dolphins and some puffins too. the staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
Excellent experience with North Sailing - by it's very nature whale watching is hit and miss, but all the company can do is offer a friendly and professional experience that makes you feel both relaxed and safe.

Whale Safari Iceland Reykjavik
Both were great and super friendly, and thanks to their combined efforts we saw two humpback whales, several Minke whales, porpoises, and white beak dolphins!!!' And puffins!
The small boats made the morning trip more personalized than a large whale watching boat...We were able to locate whales and dolphins quickly and then follow them with good speed.

Katla Whale Watching Reykjavik
We saw almost every type of wildlife common to the area (puffins, porpoises, humpback whales, minke whales, and dolphins).
The boat is able to speed up to over 100km/h so its really fun if you like it fast, its also relatively small so you can be so close to the whales and dolphins that you can almost touch them.

Was very informative and what to look for while whale watching, but great history of Iceland!
Very smooth ride and saw lots of whales, dolphins and puffins.
Whale Watching Reykjavik - Special Tours Reykjavik
We had a great morning out in the bay spotting Minke Whales and dolphins - weather was perfect, and we had a great Scottish guide whose name escapes me!
Even before we saw any whales or dolphins, it was a lovely boat trip with lots of beautiful scenery to look at, and then we were thrilled to see lots of Minke whales and white-beaked dolphins jumping around the boat.

Whale Watching Reykjanes Keflavik
I have to strongly recommend the whale watching in Reykjanes, we saw a lot of puffins and a beautiful Humpback whale, jumping and feeding itself close to the shore of Grindavik .
We booked the whale watching tour and the northern lights tour with Whale Watching Reykjanes during our short stay in Iceland, and we had a great time and full of precious memories.
Sea Trips Reykjavik Reykjavik
If you are ever in Iceland or as we were told, “Niceland” be sure to go to the waterfront and find SEA TRIPS and take a magical cruise on the Amelia Rose for Northern Lights, whale watching or private parties.
I highly recommend this whale watch cruise (or Northern Lights tour).

Keli Sea Tours Akureyri
On a very nice boat with a history and good information from one of the guys, it made the whale watching complete (and of course the warm cup of coffee/hot chocolate helped to!)
I have been on many whale watching tours and this company was very truly the best one by far!!! Thank you Keli Whale Watching!

Even before we sailed off to the whale watching arena , we had a wonderful experience of seeing the dolphins and porpoises.
The yacht is beautiful, the general views are spectacular and on top of that you get to see whales, dolphins, shooting stars and the northern lights in privacy and luxury.

Reykjavik Whale Watching Reykjavik
I think reviews on this probably depend a lot on what you get to see and we saw so much - Minke whales, Humpbacks, a pod of 4 dolphin jumping in unison plus others and, of course, Arctic terns and puffins.
The crew do their utmost to find you wildlife, and on our trip we saw harbour porpoises, white beaked dolphins and two minke whales.
