Very good experience we saw one humpback whale, only thing to make it better would have been to see more.

We had a fantastic experience on the speedboat, the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw humpback whales and dolphins. When there is a sighting, you can travel much faster than ships with a rib boat. We fully recommend this tour if your´re visiting Reykjavik.
