Really enjoyed this combo whale and puffin tour. It was cool to see the mink whales and they try really hard to get the boat as close as possible and find as many whales as possible. Although cool to see, unfortunately my tour didn't get to see anything more than fins and tales. The puffin tour was nice following and getting to see Puffin Island. You didn't get to see any puffins up close though which I feel like would have been better. I would try the whale-watching tour again, but the puffin cruise is more of a cool to see once, but wouldn't go again. You also see plenty of puffins on the whale-watching tour if you want to grab a few pics there and save money on the puffin tour. Shout-out to the whale-watching guide on the tour who was extremely knowledgeable and worked really hard to find and point out whale sightings!
We had a fun time. Only a small group on the puffin tour donut was nice, and then a bigger boat for the whales. Great guides on both, plus he guide emailed photos of the whales we saw that she had taken. Nice touch!
Our puffin tour guide, Iris, was extremely knowledgable about the birds and their habits. Who knew puffins could be so romantic? Same can be said for the whale tour. Anneka and the crew were very knowledgable and we were able to see a couple of minke whales. As amazing as the tours were, I really want to give a huge shoutout to Anneka, the captain and the crew for saving the day!! My friend and I were accidentally placed on a 3.5 hr tour when we only booked a 2.5 hr one. Usually you wouldn't think this was a problem, however, we had a flight out of Keflavik that afternoon and if we didn't find a way off the boat asap we were going to miss it. Most tours I have been on would have said sorry and there is nothing they could do, but not this crew! Without missing a beat, they decided to head back to shore as quickly as possible. We were able to catch our flight with 5 minutes to spare because of this outstanding team and their quick actions. I highly recommend them! They go the extra mile and even if you are having a stressful day like we were you will still enjoy the experience!
Great guide, fantastic trip, lots cheaper than the cruise version. The whales were mostly young males who clearly enjoyed the attention. One surfaced right next to our boat, but very safely! I got a great photo of one waving good-bye with his tail. Learned a lot about puffins, especially the Pacific tufted puffin whobears a great resemblance to an American presidential candidate....
Did not get great puffin viewings, although the guide was nice enough to show us some pictures he had on his phone and other pictures. There is a nice tour, with binoculars provided. The waters were not choppy and the boat was nice and did not smell bad.
