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

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.
