  • This was a splurge - but how often are you in Iceland? We were lucky enough to see plenty of Puffin and then be surrounded by a pod of Orca... Great Guides and they give you plenty of gear to wear to ...  more »
  • My wife suggested this after we saw the little office they have in the harbor. I hate roller coasters and I was really skeptical about just speeding around on the ocean. Oh man, was I wrong. This was ...  more »

  • First off, it's definitely a touristy thing to do. With that out of the way, the people running it are locals with big personalities and have a fun sense of humor. The boat rides provide a nice view of the islands but have a more entertainment focus over historical or natural, not to say that they are void of those latter two thing. Between locations the boat goes quite fast (which is fun) and they play pop music over suprisingly good speakers. It's a fun experience I'd do again but nothing life changing. It's a good way to see the islands and learn more about the place.
  • This was a highlight of our trip to Iceland. Part tour, part ride! We took the 2 hour trip to the smaller islands. Truly stunning beauty. We even got within 50 feet of a pod of orcas! Totally worth the price.
  • Lots of fun but hold on tight when the boat takes a tight bend at high speed! Probably not ideal for the elderly or faint-hearted.
  • Fantastic worth every penny a great guide good stories and fast boat
  • Exhilarating ride on a fast rigid inflatable boat featuring explanation and information about birds, geology, history etc. Also featuring caves, fast turns, bumpy seas and music. Bit scary at times but exhilarating and not you be missed.
