Puffin watching is always included on our sea fishing tours.
To catch your first fish is an adventure of a life time.
Join us on a sea fishing tour from Reykjavík. No experience is needed for this tour, you will have an english speaking local guide with you on board.

When we return to the harbour, the crew will cook up a delicious lunch of fresh panfried fish with potatoes and homemade sauce. The most common catches are cod, haddock, pollock, whiting and mackerel

The puffin tour is a fun and easy adventure on a boat. Depending on the tides and conditions on the islands our captains will take you to either Akurey or Lundey. The islands are well known for their plentiful birdlife and in addition to puffins you have the opportunity to view other birds such as eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots and cormorants. The island’s shores are rocky but our captains know the best spots to get closer to the puffins in their natural habitat.
During the tour our expert English speaking guides will tell you everything you want to know about the puffins, the birdlife and the surroundings.
Available: 1 May – 15 August
Duration: 1-1,5 hrs.

Enjoy 3 hrs. at sea with our expert crew and specially trained naturalists in search for the whales and wildlife of Reykjavík. The city view and landscape of the bay is also not to be missed and adds that something special to the experience.
The most common species encountered on our tours are the minke whales, humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises. Occasionally we see other species such as killer whales, fin whales, sei whales and long-finned pilot whales, although they are not as common. The whales are most abundant in summer, giving us a great chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment while they are feeding on fish and krill near our shores, although each year continues to surprise us with the variety of wildlife we see in winter and our research shows that more and more whales are staying in the area year round!
Available: All year
Duration: 2,5 – 3,5 hrs.
Departures: Daily at 13:00 and more frequently in summer. Check booking calendar for availability.
Search for Aurora Borealis away from the city lights, on this thrilling winter cruise. Northern Lights are best displayed under dark, clear skies. You can find these conditions from September until the end of April in Reykjavík. Watching the lights constantly change in intensity, colour and movement in the vast starry space with the gentle lull of the ocean beneath is a thrilling, unique experience.
As the northern lights are a natural phenomenon we cannot guarantee that we will see them, but we are professional aurora hunters with years of experience searching for the lights around Reykjavík. For a good aurora pursuit we need three things; solar activity, clear skies and darkness. A lot of other tour operators will cancel their tours if the forecast is not in their favour – well, we don’t! We know that you don’t have many days to search for the lights and that the weather can change in mere minutes, anywhere from a full cloud forecast to clear skies.
