Unacceptable business practices

They cancelled the tour. They said due to weather, but the weather was fine. I suspect they just didn't have enough people scheduled. That is not an acceptable business practice.
Great Whale Watching Experience

Excellent captain and personable and knowledgeable first mate. They made sure we saw whales during our adventure. Scenery could not have been more beautiful!

This whale watching tour was the highlight of our trip! We were so lucky to see about ten whales right in the fjord, and really enjoyed seeing puffins for the first time. The tour was extremely safe, well run and the crew was great! They were so knowledgeable about all sea life and we learned so much. I did not bring my DSLR camera because I was worried about water spray, but it was a beautiful day and the water was calm so I missed an amazing opportunity to photograph these beautiful creatures. Just the chance to see Iceland from the water was totally worth the tour price. The scenery is spectacular, and Husavik is such a charming little town. I wish we had known to book accommodations there because we would have loved to linger by the harbor. I really can't recommend this tour enough!

Great tour! Saw many whales and were able to get quite close to one. Tour guide was great! So glad they give you those big coveralls - I didn't get cold.
