What to expect?

  • Leaving from the Old Harbor in Reykjavík, this is the ultimate puffin adventure tour operated on our RIB speedboats.

  • The summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just outside Reykjavík City. Puffins, auks, gannets and an incredible variety of other sea birds dominate the skies and sea cliffs just a few minutes sailing from the Old Harbour.

  • But that is not all: this tour is operated in our custom made RIB boats. Each boat can only seat 12 passengers, so this is a personal tour, where you travel with a small group.

  • The boats are specially designed to get you as close as possible to the islands, and when possible we can switch the engines completely off to give the birds (and you) some peace and quiet to enjoy nature. During the tour, your guide and captain will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and the surroundings.

  • Our RIBs are also the fastest boats in the harbor, meaning that on a short tour you will spend the majority of your time with the birds.

What is included?

  • One hour expertly guided puffin watching tour in a 12 seat RIB boat
  • Small group - Only 12 passengers with an expert guide and captain
  • Our RIBs are fast and small, so we get you extra close to the islands
