“Whale watching” Reviewed 3 August 2015

Reviewed 7 August 2015 Our tour with Gentle Giants was great. I am terrified of the sea but I felt safe as the guide went through all the safety tips before we go on board the RIB boat. They drove carefully and kept their distance from the whale so as not to disturb it. Such respect shown for the whale. I admired that. We got to see 2 whales in action, it was an experience of a life time, just incredible. After the whale watching we went to the Puffin birds at Puffin island and had a drink. Cheers and Thank you Gentle Giants, keep up the great work.

After my lesson in Svalbard, i went with the speed boat offering and it was the right choice. Gentle Giants did it well, and most importantly we saw whales, the humpback variety and apparently minke, but they were too quick and on the wrong side for me to catch. The speedboat repositions much quicker so when a whale is spotted u get in the right spots. Position in the speedboat makes a big difference to what you can see. Wish tour companies would auction off the front rows!

Fantastic experience! Staff were efficient and very helpful. We saw minke whale and a school of white-beaked dolphins.

“Great Time in Husavik” Reviewed 29 July 2015 Husavik with Gentle Giants is absolutely fabulous Very very good Staff and and a superb Service :-) We come again !!!

“Humpbacks, and Puffins, and Blues, OH MY!” Reviewed 30 July 2015 …. Thanks, GG, for an amazing day! My advice for anyone considering a whale watching tour would be to take the RIB boat tour. Our RIB boat was so much faster than the wooden boats, so we were able to spend more time out near where the whales were feeding and we got nearer to the whales when they surfaced faster than the wooden boats.
