Amazing time, almost everyone caught...
, Jan 2018
Amazing time, almost everyone caught fish only one person didn't and they said it was not a normal day - usually the fish are practically jumping into the boat! Boat was spacious so you weren't on top of each other fishing. The fresh fish dinner on the boat was great! The crew was so nice and helpful.
Only negative - our boat was having some electrical issues, they couldn't make coffee but gave us free beer instead - totally made up for it.
The Captain was great to speak with as we are both seafarers. Sea was a bit rough but we kept doggedly at it until everyone had some catch, grilled back at the pier wonderfully by the crew due to the sea state being just a little too sketchy for using a propane tank. Only unfortunate was my darling wife caught a larger cod than I. Will certainly do again next time we visit Reykjavík.
Great fishing trip. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the old habour where our fishing boat was waiting. There were about 20 people on board but it was not crowded. I think everyone caught at least 1 or 2 fish, large cod. I had not been fishing in many many years so needed a bit of help initially and I went on to catch 4 fish, 3 of which were keepers. The fish were cooked on the way back to shore and with some potatoes made for a very nice meal. I would highly recommend this trip if you love to fish.
There was no transport back to our hotel. It was a nice night so we walked back along the shore but could be a problem if were not up to walking. There was no mention of this when we were dropped off from the boat.
First Class operation from beginning to end!
Super friendly, experienced crew!
Spectacular views. Great fishing with a delicious meal served on very comfortable, clean boat.
Fun to see the youngest member of our group catch the biggest fish:-
I would highly recommend this trip-they truly do go the extra mile to make sure
you enjoy the trip!!
This fishing trip was a great ending to our vacation in Iceland and I would highly recommend this excursion. My sons 11 and 15 had a blast. They both caught a lot of fish, some of substantial size. The captain and crew were friendly, helpful and fun. As we caught the fish, they were cleaned on the boat and grilled for us to enjoy on the way back to the dock. Our expectations were exceeded and we are thankful to have had this great experience.
A GREAT experience!! This was a small boat and a small group which made the experience fantastic. The captain was awesome. We caught plenty of fish and ate it right on the boat. Would absolutely go again!
This was an awesome experience! Our entire family had a blast. A bus picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the dock. The crew was friendly and professional. We all caught fish cod, ling, wolf fish.
On the way back, the crew cooked the fish and we ate a delicious meal! They also supplied foul weather jackets and all the fishing gear and bait. A bus took us back to the hotel as well.
The crew on the boat were great! The cooking of the fish was great!! Good times! Only down side was the people we were on the boat with were annoying, but the company can't do anything about that! Good thing it's a big boat :
