Christmas is just around the corner and holiday atmosphere here in Húsavík. Our boats have been decorated with the annual lights and look great in Húsavík harbour in this darkest period of the year.
Still looking for a Christmas gift? Surprise your near and dear ones with a gift card for a whale watching experience from the Whale Capital of Iceland.

Two decades at Gentle Giants at the age of "only" 32. Not only is this a big birthday year for the company celebrating twenty years but also indeed for our team member Daniel, who has been a part of the team since the very beginning and with passion taken part in the whole successful development step by step.

Yet another memorable and successful whale watching season has come to an end today.
We'd like to thank all our passengers for having joined our tours throughout the season as well as our crew on land and on the boats for coming from near and far to make the tours possible.

Orcas on today's tour. In snowy winter weather today, the enthusiastic crew and passengers on board Sylvía eagerly searched for whales but keeping expectations low due the conditions. But as we always say, wild nature is indeed unpredictable.

The leading German model ship magazine ModellWerft has just published a detailed front page article featuring a model ship inspired by Gentle Giants boat Faldur.
It certainly was a great surprise when we received a copy of the newest issue of the ModellWerft magazine yesterday, where Faldur plays a major different role.
