Puffin and birdwatching on a boat is a fun and educational thing to do with friends and your family.
Summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands outside Reykjavík.
The puffin islands are small islands located in the bay outside of Reykjavík. It ́s only 15 minutes sailing from Reykjavík Old harbour, from where we depart.
Atlantic Puffins are the most common bird in Iceland (about 3.3 million birds). Puffins have colonies on the island of Akurey ( 15.000 pairs) and on the island of Lundey (10.000 pairs).
The fishing boat Saga only takes a maximum of 20 passengers in a tour and therefore we provide more personal service than other similar tours. Good space and good viewpoints for all our passengers. These are the best seats!
We provide very good binoculars. Remember to wear appropriate clothing due to weather. Also bring your camera and the good mood.
