Ambassador was founded by the whale watching enthusiast, captain Magnus Gudjonsson in 2013 in the town of Akureyri in northern Iceland. The company soon gained very good reputation and in early 2017 we also started tours from the Reykjavik harbor.
Our goal has always been to deliver first-class tours, where safety and quality are the key factors. All our tours are constructed with passion by wildlife experts to deliver the ultimate whale watching experience for you and your companions.
Ambassadors team of professionals strives to make your tour unforgettable while observing the code of conduct with nature, the environment and, of course, the wonderful whales themselves.
Our team of guides consists of carefully selected whale watching and wildlife enthusiasts who love to share their wealth of knowledge and provide you with a genuine and entertaining whale watching experience.
Our vessels are specially designed for whale watching. They are fast, stable and safe, designed to give you the best possible viewing angles while complying with the strictest safety standards for comfort and cleanliness. Since we get excellent reviews on Facebook and TripAdvisor, we are confident that once you set your foot on board you will agree.
Our Reykjavik office is located right by the old Reykjavik harbor in the heart of the city. From our comfortable and cozy loft we book Ambassadors marine tours and many other exciting adventures.
With our Friends in Iceland we cooperate on booking helicopter tours, rental cars, horseback riding tours, Golden Circle tours and many, many other fun activities. Our network consists of carefully selected professionals that we respect and trust. We want to avoid the mass tourism and stay cool, classy and sassy with our precious entourage.
Whatever your budget is and however long you plan to stay here, we can help you to get the most out of your visit to our beautiful country.
“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 breaching Humpback whales and Minke whales. It was marvelous to see the Humpback whales breaching just in front of the boat. A wonderful trip!”
– Sven, Germany
“This is as close as you can get to humpback whales while still being surrounded by land and ice of Akureyri. It was a beautiful trip with Ambassador, which I shan’t forget for my entire life! Recommend highly when you are in Akureyri or Iceland!”
