“Stunning scenery, with whales!” I wandered in to the office and asked if they thought there was much chance of seeing whales that day. I was drily informed by a guide that the probability was between 99-100% so I booked and am so glad I did! We saw lots of minke whales and humpbacks, with some of the humpbacks coming very close to us....
“First Class Experience!”
Today we went on their last whale watching trip of the year, they end now until next Spring. And what a way to finish! We saw minke and humpbacks playing and diving no more than 5 metres from our boat. For over an hour we watched and photographed these amazing creatures, seemingly oblivious to us being there.
We could not keep count on the many whales we saw, so close up that I felt like I could just reach out my hand and touch them. What an amazing experience. We were on a high speed boat so we could just follow the whales and get up very close again and again. We also saw the warmest waterfall in Europe. Excellent trip with nice details in addition to the main purpose of seeing whales. Beautiful view of the mountains surrounding the fjord.
“Close enough to touch the whales!”
My husband and I did the speed boat tour on our honeymoon, and we had a fantastic time! We saw harbor porpoises, minke whales, and humpbacks so close that they sprayed water on us. Our guide Mary was knowledgeable and fun to have with us. I would highly recommend this your for anyone who loves beautiful views and marine life!
“Best excursion in Iceland for us!”
We went whale watching on the extreme ribbed boat on October 22. Our captain Örn and our guide Anna were amazing! We were able to get up close to all the whales! It was an amazing experience! We saw about 6-7 different humpbacks and a few minke whales. It was so worth the money. I would really recommend the extreme boat tour because you can see the whales so well from the small boat and with just a few people around you. It is also fast enough to cruise over to a whale when you start to see it from far. I think this was my favorite thing I've experienced in Iceland!
“Used Ambassador for Northern Lights Viewing
Ambassador took us on a northern lights viewing tour in Akureyri and needless to say, we are so glad that we went along. At our hotel, the Icelandair Akureyri, they recommended that we go out on a boat to see the northern lights because their forecast said there would be a good chance of catching them. Well, we listened and spent the $100 to go and have nothing but a lifetime of memories.
We saw the aurora borealis in all the colors you can possibly imagine, dancing, bouncing and just at their best. It was a frigidly cold night, but the boat staff did their best to offer us blankets and let us go down to the bottom, covered deck to keep warm. It was a lovely experience and Ambassador made it possible.”
“Stunning scenery, with whales We took a morning excursion on a RIB boat and were not disappointed. The staff were very accommodating. We had great weather, and the fjord was very calm. We first saw a minke whale at some distance. But pretty quickly came across a pair of humpbacks. I was surprised at how close they came to the boat as they fed – they didn’t seem too worried about us. Impressive creatures and a wonderful experience.
“Stunning scenery, with whales
Perfect for whale watching. Wear their overalls to keep warm. Crew knew where we had to go to see whales. I have brilliant photos
