Express Puffin Tour from Reykjavik Harbour
Reykjavik’s old harbour is well known for its various whale watching experiences but during the summer month the Icelandic coast line become home to another popular form of seafaring animal life. 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. We endeavour to leave earlier than other companies to afford our guests a relatively uninterrupted chance to witness these birds in their natural habitat.
But that is not all, this tour is operated in our custom made RIB boats. They 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 our surroundings.
