What You Can Expect

Sea-Fishing Tour from Reykjavik

Sea-Fishing Tour from Reykjavik

Begin your experience with a pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel, and travel to the Old Harbour. 

Meet the friendly captain and crew on your fishing boat, and don some warm coveralls to keep you cozy. Then, enjoy the views as your boat heads out into the icy waters of Reykjavik’s Faxaflói Bay.

Feel the thrill as you cut through the waves, and set about using the supplied angling equipment. As well as experienced anglers, this trip is ideal for first-timers, so if you’ve never been sea fishing, don’t worry — the crew will guide you through the essentials. All the necessary items, including fishing rods and bait, are provided on board.

Once you’re ready, drop your line and enjoy an exciting angling session. Species you may catch include cod, haddock, pollock, halibut and rockfish.

If you’re fishing in summer (May to August), your boat will pass the islands of Akurey and Lundey during your trip. Both islands are famous for their seabirds and summertime puffin colonies, so keep your eyes peeled for these colorful birds nesting on the shores.

After your fishing session, you’re free to either barbecue your catch on the boat or to ask to have your fish packed in special crates, available on request.

Your 2.5-hour fishing adventure then ends with a drop-off at your Reykjavik hotel.

If I could rate this a 10 star I would! So much fun. We all caught fish and enjoyed reeling them in. The boat was clean and well stocked. We then enjoyed a family style dinner of potatoes and all of the fish we caught freshly grilled on board. We seriously are thinking about going a second time on this visit! The best and highly recommend.

Great tour!! We all caught lots of cod and a few mackerel! The captain moved the boat as soon as the catch slowed down. The fish starts biting as soon as we dropped our hooks. After fishing for an hour, the captain barbecued our catch with potatoes and spices - delicious. We could take filets with us if we wanted. I highly recommend this trip!

Thank you to all the crew. This trip was fantastic, everyone on the boat caught lots of fish, it was really impressive. There were lots of fish to eat afterward, and we were able to bring more back home. Thank and #39;s again! I will have to convince my father to come to Iceland to fish :-)

A must-try activity especially for first-time fishing. We caught so many fishes within a short time with the help of the capable crew and thereafter, they cooked the delicious fishes for us. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Great Fishing Tour!!! Nice, helpful, all you need is yourself and a desire to fish! Captain took us out to about 100' to start with and pulled in some pretty good sized fish....
Then he took us to about 200' and I caught a 24lb COD.... Biggest they had had for a while!!
Even the Captain and the Crew were excited about it! It was as long as my 7 year old son... WOW!!
Had a fabulous time!! Thanks to the Crew and the great eats after the trip!!! Oh yea, feeding the Seagulls was fun for my 7 year old!!! Would do it again and again!
