One of the best excursions of my life. A fabulous experience with knowledgeable Captin and crew ( Captin Eagle and first mate Anna ) were incredible. A must-do visit for anyone visiting Alaska. You will see whales and they will be up close and personal !!! You won’t be disappointed in the least
Whale watching is an amazing experience and everyone that has the chance should see these magnificent creatures in their natural inhabitance. Húsavík, is often called the whale-watching capital of Iceland, however in recent years, tours from Akureyri have become increasingly popular, and not without good reason.
Ambassador is a specialist whale watching tour company that offers a range of whale watching and marine wildlife adventures from Akureyri. Their tours explore the pristine waters of Eyjafjörður fjord and its abundant wildlife and spectacular natural beauty on three boats, each custom built for whale watching. The viewing decks give explorers plenty of freedom to move around from point to point to capture the scenes. Each tour is guided by professionals to enrich your knowledge and understanding of the fjord‘s ecosystem, geology, history and folklore. It is certainly worth mentioning that Ambassador had a 100% success rate of spotting whales in 2015. Considering that whales are wild and unpredictable creatures, these kind of statics are very impressive!
Ambassador Whale Watching offers whale watching tours from the start from 1st of May until the end of October. Departing from Akureyri, each tour is roughly 3 hours. Restrooms, comfortable seats, light snacks, beverages, and sandwiches are available on board. For further information, prices and bookings, please see their website.
