My family and I decided to take the rib boat whale watching tour because we wanted to see the whales while enjoying the calm of the fjord. It’s a fast boat and it might get a bit bumpy but the pilot made it way more comfortable. I must say that floating in this small boat in the

What a great outing (RIB boat)! We were given full flotation suits to keep us warm and (mostly) dry. Goggles, gloves and hats were also available. My husband and I sat in the very front and we got drenched (faces and feet) a couple of times – all part of the experience!

Booked the RIB boat tour (Akureyri) in August 2019. In summary, - My original tour was cancelled one-day prior for somewhat unclear reasons (due to captain's something) which was notified via email. I was offered to switch to another time slot in the same day. I accepted the

Dear ldj138, Sorry to hear that this was your experience of our services. Unfortunately sometimes we don't have any other option but to cancel our tours; the reason can be anywhere from boat malfunction to unsuitable weather, but we try our best to reschedule our passengers or arrange other options the best we can. Of course we try and notify our passengers of any cancellations in good time before departure, however sometimes it is just not possible. We would like to apologise if this was untimely in your case. When we cancel tours we ask our customers to confirm via email if they would like to transfer to another departure / tour or if they would rather like to have a refund. Generally we confirm back and notify that a refund may take anywhere from 3-10 days to appear on our customer's statements (which unfortunately is out of our control and has to do with wire transfers between the two banks). Again, apologies if this was not done within a suitable timeframe. Your comments are duly noted and will be taken up within the team so we can continue to improve our services and hopefully make future cancellations / refunds smoother. Thank you very much for your honest feedback. All the best, The Akureyri Whale Watching team
