Cuando el barco atraque en el puerto de Reikiavik, realice una excursión por la costa de 1 hora de duración para ver el lugar en el que vive la colonia más grande de frailecillos de Islandia. Elija entre cuatro horarios de partida diferentes, y después de una travesía de 15 minutos, navegará alrededor de la isla contemplando a los frailecillos y a otras aves marinas autóctonas como los araos negros y las golondrinas del ártico. Conozca detalles sobre la cautivadora flora y fauna que le proporcionará el guía a bordo y después se pondrá rumbo a Reikiavik.
Really excellent! We had a very calm day so saw lots of puffins, as we learned they need loads of wind to take off!! Our guide on the boat gave an outstanding commentary, both interesting and entertaining. So exciting as it was a lifelong dream of mine to see these little cuties and they did not disappoint. Booking office was easy to find at the harbor and there is a handy toilet in there to use before you set sail.
The tour description is very accurate. Binoculars were provided, but the quality was not very good. Suggest you bring your own. It was a very nice day, so we sat in the back of the boat which was a big mistake because the speakers did not work. We did not hear a thing the guide said. We did get to see Puffins which was great. It was excting to see them on the island, in the water and flying around.
Supposedly we went out on a calm day. Trip was quite scary. Boat was very small for 37 people. Life vests were available but not given out. People were terrified as boat rocked from side to side once we got our of the harbor. Some people got sick. Could not get very close to view puffins.
I would love the opportunity to do this again, when the puffins are all home. We only saw 4, and that was because we did the very first tour of the summer, May 1. I understand and do not discredit the planned tour at all. Just too early in the year. The tour team was knowledgeable and very nice.
