It was a lovely trip. Saw some orcas which was nice but disappointed that we didn’t see more of them as they are herd animals. I have done a similar trip in Iceland so knew what to expect. It is a 3.5 hour journey there so bring cards etc and 3.5h journey back but even if you see just one orca it is definitely worth it!

Excellent trip overall with good staff. Quite a long trip because of the location the herring have chosen this season. Boat ride there was beautiful passing through fjords. Some stretches of the trip are more exposed and a little bumpy and some passengers got sea sick (which overcame them even when we saw the whales). Some excellent sightings though. About 20 humpback and a pod of Orca.

The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. They put everyone at ease. They told interesting stories about all the places and other facts. After a long search we were lucky to see (at the farthest point) orcas and a humpback whale. We could not have wished for better, our compliments!
