Sea-Fishing Tour from Reykjavik

Sea-Fishing Tour from Reykjavik

Set off from Reykjavik´s Old Harbour and head out into Faxaflói, a large bay that is home to fish like cod, halibut, haddock, rockfish and pollock, which your experienced fishing guide will spot in a flash!

If you haven´t been sea fishing, don´t worry! It’s easy to learn, and your crew will happily show you the ropes, advising you on bait and passing on their angling knowledge. Listen to the captain and crew tell entertaining stories of the sea, and ask them any questions you have. All necessary equipment, including fishing rods and bait, is available on board.

This sea-angling tour is great for both experienced fishermen intent on reeling in as much as they can and those who simply wish to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding with a fishing rod in hand. When you’ve finished fishing, you can either barbeque your catch on board to enjoy right away, or take your fish with you in special boxes provided on request.

When you take this tour between May 1 and August 15, you’ll also go to the 'puffin islands' of Akurey and Lundey, where thousands of seabirds, including puffins, nest every year.

The crew were friendly and we caught plenty of cod, albeit quite small ones. However, when they were BBQ'd on the boat by the crew they were out of this world! I highly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful trip and a great introduction to the generosity of Icelanders. Besides catching and eating oodles of cod while freezing and getting soaked to the skin, we met two remarkable men: the captain, who gives any surplus filets to a shelter, and likes to engage the passengers in discussions about social justice and taking care of one's fellow men and the mate, a business consultant by day who crews every evening for the joy of it. He may be the happiest man I've ever met.

Great boat. Great crew. Wrestled a good many cod to the boat I lost count, if you can believe! A fine half day of fishing, and just minutes away from the Reykjavik shore. Save a couple of fish for the delicious fish meal aboard the boat but please release the rest!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We caught lots of fish. I caught 12. Cooked them up on the way back. Tasted great. Captain and his mate were very nice, helpful and did a great job.
