Sea Fishing Experience from Reykjavik

Summary

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, we can either prepare your catch for you to take back to your hotel/apartment to be cooked, or grill the catch on board.
