What customers say It was a great whale watching tour! We saw 6 or 7 whales and got within 10 metres of one. Just off the bow there you could almost pet it we were so close. - Shawn, US
I took the Akureyri Whale Watching Tour with my family and we had a great trip. We saw breeching Humpback whales and Minke whales. It was marvelous to see the Humpback whales breeching just in front of the boat. A wonderful trip! - Sven, Germany
