On a sea-angling tour from Húsavík, you have a very good chance to see whales and dolphins.
The islands in Húsavík's bay have many puffins in summer, helping to add to your sea-angling tour.

Catch yourself your own meal with this sea-angling tour from the northern town of Húsavík. This trip should not be missed by avid anglers who want to surround themselves with beautiful nature.

This tour begins when you find your sea angling vessel at Húsavík Harbour. Here, you will put on some overalls, board, and set out into the beautiful Skjálfandi Bay. All equipment needed for you to hook yourself up your dinner will be provided for you.

Skjálfandi bay is surrounded by beautiful mountains and cliffs and dotted with many islands. These are home to many species of bird, including puffins from May to August, which you will see circling overhead, diving in the water, or resting on its surface. It is better known, however, for its whale-life.

Although you will not actively seek out the marine mammals that live here, Húsavík is the whale-watching capital of Europe. It is, therefore, more than possible that you will spot a resident Humpback Whale, or a pod of White-Beaked Dolphins, alongside over twenty more less common species.

As soon as you reach your fishing spot, you’ll cast your line, and wait patiently, admiring the beautiful surroundings. This bay is full of life, so it will not be long before you hook up a fish; the tour has, in fact, a 100% catch guarantee, and if you do not catch anything you can join another trip for free. 

The main species found on sea-angling tours from Iceland are catfish, cod, haddock and mackerel. Your captain can fillet this for you at the end of the tour, so you can either take it home and cook it yourself or bring it to a local restaurant and let a talented chef do the hard work.

Enjoy the beauty and bounties of Skjálfandi Bay on this sea-angling tour from Húsavík. Check availability by choosing a date.
