Story

The m/s Ambassador has been referred to as one of the best whale-watching boats in Iceland, due to her six observation platforms. She was originally built in Hamburg, Germany in 1971 as a police vessel. In 1998 she was refurbished as a pleasure yacht and later sold to Sweden. She was brought to Iceland in 2012 and was refurbished and specially designed for whale-watching in Iceland.
