We were lucky to have a wonderful weather. All was very well organized, A very good guide / crew member Kaja has given us plenty information about the whales, ocean the capitain found and followed at least 3 humbaks , dolphins. We were able to observe the life of puffins. And the cinnamone cake and warm chocolade at the end of such a succesful trip. Thank you! Highly recommended!

A bit unlucky with the weather, foggy, windy and rainy but otherwise it was fantastic. We got to see whales, dolphins and puffins so the trip paid off. If you are prone to seasickness, you should not go out when the wind is strong because the experience will be good but not as fantastic.

Empfehlenswerte Tour, freundliches Personal. Man bekommt einen warmen Overall, trotzdem ist warme Bekleidung darunter sehr wichtig, denn in einem offenen Boot auf dem Nordatlantik pfeift der Wind anständig und es ist kühler als auf dem Land. Wir hatten darunter bis zu acht (!!) Schichten angezogen und daher war es uns nicht kalt. Haube und warme Schuhe sind unerlässlich!
