Don't book this.

Operator cancelled due to poor weather on a clear day with clear water and perfect conditions. Don't book this if you actually want to go whale watching.

Probably better another time of year
Christopher_B
, Jan 2022
Very cold day and staff member at booking office seemed unsure we’d see anything, and unfortunately we didn’t we have had a offer to go again if we come back to Iceland, I know they can’t guarantee seeing whales but I think some days should be just cancelled as there wasn’t a chance at all of seeing anything

A new year’s treat!
Mariela_M
, Jan 2022
My husband and I went on the cruise on 31 December as a little something to do before the new year’s eve celebrations - we loved the whole experience, the yacht, the crew, the hot chocolate! We saw dolphins and whales, a seal and lots of birds - it was great fun and we felt very lucky to have seen so much of the Icelandic marine wildlife, as it’s nature and there is no guarantee you’ll see something. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable - we learned a lot about white-beaked dolphins and humpback whales and how to look out for them. 5 star experience, highly recommended it, thank you everyone at Sea Trips Reykjavik for such a memorable day!

Beautiful boat and fantastic experience
Hazel_L
, Dec 2021
A fantastic boat, gorgeous inside and limited number of passengers which gives you a more personal and less frantic experience. The crew were knowledgable and went above and beyond to get us the experience of finding whales, even staying out an extra hour once we found them. Although we saw humpback whales, because they were a little elusive they offered us an other opportunity to go free of charge anytime n the next 3 years which is amazing customer service. Highly recommend.

We did not see any sea animals at all which was disappointing but my son was sick throughout the whole trip and the owner was amazing so kind and attentive, checking on him all the time. I was really grateful for his help.

Whales but screaming children running around the boat
Carl_P
, Dec 2021
We saw whales but kids were on our tour screaming and crying throughout making it unenjoyable. Not worth the money
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Dear Carl, I was your guide for that trip, I must say I am confused and hurt by your 1star review. Completely out of humpback season I found us not one but two humpback whales that came and fed and played around the superyacht. Everyone else has given us five stars for this trip, citing the gorgeous, spacious ship, attentive and professional crew, and overall fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I have checked the booking and can confirm we only had one family on board that day, and I remember them, they were not sitting in the main saloon near the bar, but spent almost all their time in the smaller upstairs saloon, and talking to the captain. As a crew member, I am very aware of children´s locations and behavior as we have to keep an extra eye on them for safety. On the rare occasion they get too over excited the crew will ask them not to scare the whales which always has the desired effect and they calm down. I had no cause to ask either the kids or the parents for anything in this case. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your trip because of them but given we have 4 different floors, I do not know why you didn't move when the ship was only at 1/3 capacity, or even speak to one of my crew members, they would have happily spoken to the parents. I feel that this one star is a very cruel rating for our small business, judging us purely on the behavior of someone else's child, rather than the outstanding trip my crew gave you. Please consider removing this review. Despite this review, I really hope you have a great time here in Iceland, and I am happy I got to give you such an awesome interaction with these majestic animals. Lucky

Dolphins in their natural habitat
Zoe_J
, Dec 2021
Seeing dolphins was the highlight of the trip. The yacht was comfortable and we were well looked after. Small group of about 20 people. Nice hot chocolate and not too expensive. Very cold and windy on the deck but it's to be expected. Careful of slippery icy floor. Wish we'd seen whales but it wasn't meant to be this time.

A Whale of a day!

A nice friendly crew, plenty of space on the lovely yacht, and we were lucky enough to see a humpback whale even though it was out of season. Would recommend this company.
