  • Great experience on the 5:00 to 8:00 sea fishing trip. Very nice small but fast boat staffed with two biologist guides and three additional crew for our 15 passenger group (they can take up to 25). Two kids around 8 years old were on the trip and really enjoyed it. I wouldn't take much younger than that, however. Under 15 years old are half price. We stopped to fish in four different spots, all near dolphins, whales and puffins, with nearly everyone catching at least one or two fish. Only a few had sea fished before, with the crew helping everyone that needed it (it was pretty simple anyway). We were having so much fun that the captain even extended the trip by a half hour. As fish were caught the crew prepared them for the grill. On the way back to the dock, they served a generous sample along with potatoes and sauce. It was a nice light meal that made the trip extra special. A similar meal in Reykjavik would be $40/person, so take that into consideration when comparing the cost to a typical whale watching tour. I would highly recommend this compared to other boat excursions.

  • The best company in Iceland that is very flexible, depend of what You want (Whale watching, Northern Light hunting, Fishing tours, Private Tours). Very nice, vell trained and helpful staff. If You not find Northern lite once- You can come again and again and again until You see it. Very safety new floating suits and all equipments on ships of this company. Strongly recommend for everybody.

  • I highly recommend the boat over bus when it comes to northern lights, and special tours is an amazing choice. They were knowledgeable and super friendly. They also took pictures for us so we could focus on enjoying the lights. A+ experience.

  • Went whale watching with them with a 10% online discount and no fuss! Tour guide was very knowledgeable about whales and they have good communication with other tour companies to identify location of whales together so we saw several whales on that day. Nice big ship. Personally I suggest doing it on a sunny day if you can.

  • Having biologists as the guides was a great idea. Sarah and Jonathan were friendly and knowledgeable. Good to have binoculars on hand. Also appreciate the guides showing us different stages of the puffins in the book.
