Experience the true wonders of the puffin on this exclusive RIB speed boat tour from Reykjavík old harbour. Icelanders are fortunate that after just a 5-10min sail from Reykjavík is one of the most significant puffin colonies in the world and on only 2 of the small islands in the bay there are around 40.000 puffins.
Hop abroad a custom made RIB boat with suspension seats which give you more comfort and make it easier for us to get much closer to the islands than bigger boats.
Set off from Reykjavík old harbour, which is located just 5 minutes from Reykjavík centre. With departures every day, the trip lasts one hour. It is recommended that you be there 15-20 min before departure since you will be provided with a full-body suit to keep you warm and dry during your trip.
Iceland has the biggest puffin colony in the world (about 60% of the world's population), and they come into the island during summer to breed. For the rest of the year, these birds spend time at sea where they are well suited through the whole winter since they mostly eat fish.
The only reason puffins come into land during summer is to breed and nest their eggs.
These magnificent creatures mate for life and come back to their same nesting spot every year to raise their puffling.
On this speedboat tour, you will be provided with a full-body suit, life vest, goggles and a scarf which you can keep after the trip. We do, however, recommend that you dress warmly and bring a hat and gloves.
You can bring a camera on the trip, and you can keep it inside your suit during the travel to the islands.
Join us today on a trip full of excitement!
