This trip was amazing, we were lucky and saw very active northern lights the night that we decided to go! We had booked it for the next night, but decided to go the night before we booked because the sky was clear and they were predicting strong northern lights. The company is very flexible and they provide warm overalls, which is important out on the water.
The wintersuits were warm, and we got to see the lights! Our trip was postponed from 10 to midnight due to weather, but it was well worth it because we got a better view of the night sky.
A fun tour even though we only saw 2 glimpses and a hint of green lights as we were starting to head back to the harbor. If you are proud to sea sickness, this isn't the tour for you.
Boat trip was great, unfortunately not a lot of Northern Lights action. On our first boat trip there was too much cloud cover so we did not see any Northern Lights. We were given another complimentary ticket to come back as we did not see the Northern Lights. Our second boat trip was safe and good, with a slight glimmer of the Northern Lights. Again, not much action so we have another complimentary ticket should we return again to Iceland. Nothing wrong with the boat trip, you are just relying upon a natural phenomenon. Visited in October 2016.
Didn't get to see the lights but you can keep trying if that happens lifetime guarantee!. The first night was too choppy so they organised a bus to go into the countryside instead. They provided us with cosy overalls on the boat and gave us plenty information on both the bus and the boat actually. As the night wore on, they gave us a free hot drink - I don't think this was ordinarily included, it was just quite rough and cold so they were being nice. Even though I didn't get to see the lights, they tried their best and I had a great time.
The harbour isn't perfectly dark but they go out a fair distance and it's an experience unto itself.

Worked out perfectly. We saw the show from the boat bingo. September is a very good time of the year to see the dancing Northern Lights!
We saw a truly spectacular display of northern lights on a clear night in the bay of Reykjavik. The warm jumpsuits were great to have as we watched from the top deck of the boat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great explanation of the science behind what we were experiencing. Great tour!
The night was perfect. There was only a sliver of the moon showing so it was perfectly dark for viewing stars and showers of green light. The girl narrating from the bridge was very knowledgable about the night sky and the man reciting the poem was delightful! We all were very blessed to be there!!
My tour was nothing short of spectacular! We went very late in the season and were not expecting to see any lights. Turns out we saw lights from the beginning to the end of our tour. The stories, poems, and songs were an additional bonus. I highly recommend this your to anyone who goes to Iceland!
You're at the mercy of Mother Nature on this one...but we lucked out and saw a great show! The tour operators were great - just be sure to get there early to get a good seat on the top deck! It gets crowded.
