  • Breathtaking

    We didn’t have any luck originally so got a free ticket for next time, booked in for the following day and the second time was a charm! Saw two humpbacks and pod of dolphins. Our guide Megan was super informative and conscious about the animals, knowing when to get closer and when to withdraw so that we don’t disturb them more than necessary. Overall great experience, would certainly book ahead with some extra time left before you leave Iceland, in case you need to give it another shot in one of the following days, so don’t leave this for your last day :)
