We are a specialist Whale Watching Tour Company offering a range of whale watching and marine wildlife adventures from Reykjavík and Akureyri, Iceland.

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. 

First class tours

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.

The Ambassador team is a perfect mix of professionalism and passion and we strive to make your tour unforgettable while respecting the delicacy of the environment in which we operate. We love whale watching, and we want to share our 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.

 The Reykjavik office

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.

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 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!
