Puffins are some of the most interesting creatures on the planet. With big, colorful beaks, dark soulful eyes and an almost penguin like appearance, it is hard not to love them. Embarking on a puffin-watching cruise is similar to going on an ocean treasure hunt – you never really know what's going to appear. Puffins are usually witnesses on the nearby land, bobbing on the water or flying overhead – the charismatic Puffin is definitely a treat to see in person!

We are conveniently located at the old harbour which is downtown Reykjavik. 

Please be aware that due to environmental reasons this trip will be delivered on a shared boat with our partners. At Reykjavik Sailors we are committed to ensuring the environment is kept pristine by making sure fewer boats are on the water during slower periods.

NOTE: You should schedule to be at our departure point the latest 30 minutes before scheduled departure.
