    in the field. I have personally over 40 years of experi-

    ence in the bay and like to think of myself as continu-

    ing my familys 150 year long tradition started by my

    great great grandfather who was a fisherman just like

    my great grandfather, grandfather and father would

    later be not to forget my GREAT grand mothers

    too. Put short: We were born by the bay of Skjlf andi

    and our ancestors too. Way back!

    Gentle Giants goal is to make every visitor a happy

    one. We are proud of the Certificates of Excellence

    standing service and delivering a great experience.

    In 2001 eleven experienced, diverse individuals

    in Hsavk decided to combine their years of

    expertise in a variety of fields to establish a new

    travel and tourism company in Hsavk. The group

    restored an old oak boat, which was originally a

    fishing and whale hunting boat, and put it back

    into commission sailing visitors around Skjlfandi

    Bay searching for whales not for hunting but

    for watching! The immense effort proved more

    than worthwhile, growing into a giant success

    among visitors. Ever since then Gentle Giants

    has employed great staff and enjoyed a rapidly

    increasing number of annual visitors.

    Our modern RIB speedboats, AMMA SIGGA, AMMA KIBBA and AMMA SIGGA II, are ideal for whale watch-ing and all kinds of tailor made exciting activities on sea, for both smaller and larger groups. With the high speed, the boats can get faster around and in-crease the chances of seeing whales. The RIBs are per-fect for all kinds of shorter and longer private tours, such as to Flatey Island and Grmsey Island or a 30-60 minutes fun action tour. The limitations of possibilities are up to your imagination. Named after the owners grandmothers, these boats are indeed believed to be some of the fastest grannies in the world.

    This is your perfect opportunity! As a licenced tour operator, Gentle Giants has organized many tailor made excursions throughout the years. We would be happy to shape a unique adventure together with you, which will turn into lifetime memories for you to think back at in the future. Welcome to give us an idea of your dream trip - contact us for more information.Note: Tailor made refreshments available at a reasonable price.
