Hop on board a speedboat and explore Iceland's eastern coast in search of the famous Atlantic puffin with this one-hour private sea adventure. Travelers who want to see puffins, whales, and beautiful coastal sceneries should book this tour now.

The Atlantic puffin fascinates people worldwide with its beautiful black, gray, white, red, and orange colors. This adorable seabird is native to the Atlantic Ocean and spends most of its life at sea. 

The puffin returns to land during the breeding season in late spring and dwells on coastal cliffs. Iceland has the largest puffin colony in the world, and this is because of its rocky sea cliffs, which are an excellent breeding ground for this type of bird.

Most puffins in Iceland are found in the Westman Islands off the south coast of Iceland, but there are also numerous puffins in the Eastern region which is the location of this tour.

The tour begins by meeting your tour guide at Bakkagerdi town in East Iceland, where you will be briefed about the trip and given a waterproof overall and life jacket. This tour is private, so strangers will not join your group. 

Up to twelve family members or friends can join you in this exciting sea adventure. Once your group is ready, you will board a RIB speedboat and take off across the vast sea!

The incredible cliffs lining the shoreline will take your breath away, and you will be greeted by the cold Atlantic breeze. Soon enough, you will see flocks of charming puffins resting on the cliffs, diving for fish, or flying overhead. 

These birds are used to being watched by humans, so you don't have to worry about disturbing their peace. Your speedboat is even designed to let you have a close encounter with these Icelandic animals in their natural habitat.

While you're admiring this fantastic display of Icelandic birdlife, your guide on board will entertain the group with information about these birds. You'll learn about their life cycle, breeding season, and more. 

Iceland is brimming with wildlife both on land and at sea. Aside from the puffins, you'll also see other species of birds. If luck is on your side, you might even spot a beautiful whale during your trip, making the entire experience more fun and exciting! 

Take advantage of this chance to see the iconic Atlantic puffins and the wonderful wildlife of Iceland on a private RIB boat tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
