Leaving up to nine times a day from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík, this is the ultimate puffin adventure tour. Whale Safari arrives before other operators so you can enjoy an uninterrupted visit to the puffins and seabirds of the Faxaflói Bay.

The summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just outside Reykjavík City. Puffins, auks, gannets and an incredible variety of other sea birds dominate the skies and sea cliffs just a few minutes sailing from the Old Harbour.

But that is not all, this tour is operated in Whale Safari’s custom made RIB boats. They are specially designed to get you as close as possible to the islands and when possible the captain can switch them completely off to give the birds (and you) some peace and quiet to enjoy nature. During the tour your guide and captain will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and the surroundings.

The Whale Safari RIBs are also the fastest boats in the harbour, meaning that on a short tour you will spend the majority of your time with the birds.


There is a age limit of 10 years or 145 cms tall to go on the RIB boats.

You will be provided with warm flotation suits and all safety equipment.

Dress warmly for the cold North Atlantic ocean. Bring warm outdoor clothing like a  wool or fleece sweater, some warm headgear and gloves. Sturdy shoes are recommended.

Meeting point is at the Whale Safari Office located on Ægisgarður in the Old Reykjavík Harbour.

This tour is operated by our friends at Whale Safari.
