Information

Gestur

Story

Gestur was originally built as an action boat in the US but brought to Iceland in the late 90's and was at the time the main whale watching boat in southern Iceland. It came into the hands of the Elding family in 2007 and to begin with we used it mainly as a ferry boat to Viðey Island. We have made a few changes to the boat to make it more suited to the service we provide.
