Exciting ride!
, Aug 2021
Easily the best whale watch I have been on. The boat ride was incredibly fun. We saw dolphins swim under and around the boat, whales (one breached!), and puffins. The boat ride alone is worth it, the whales were the bonus.
Great customer service

Fantastic experience. The ride was a lot of fun— the speed boat makes the time pass very quickly. It’s way more fun than a traditional boat ride. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They give you some great warm weather clothes to make the ride more tolerable. They’re very accommodating- we landed late and couldn’t make our original tour time and they offered to move us to another day. Highly recommend — and we saw lots of whales and dolphins.

Incredible Sights

A must! Our guides, Peter (captain) and Thor were great! We were able to see Puffins, a Minky Whale, dolphins, and a Bone Shark ( which I understand is rare). Even if we didn’t see any mammals, the ocean and landscapes were beautiful! Highly recommend this tour!

Eine wunderschöne Tour mit vielen Informationen rund um Puffins und Wale, die Bootsfahrt allein war schon ein tolles Erlebnis, Vater und Sohn ein eingespieltes Team und sehr sehr nett
