There wasn't anything special about the tour. It is the off season so the chances of seeing anything are slim anyways. It was 3.5 hours and I think if we actually saw something it would've been worth it. The only thing we saw were dolphins...More

The Whale watching was fabulous. The crew were really knowledgeable and we couldn't have asked for more. The evening was spent looking for the Northern Lights. Again the guide was really knowledgeable, we saw a lovely hue. Definitely worth every penny
