Puffin Express by RIB Speedboat
The Puffin Express by RIB Speedboat is the perfect option for an exciting, fast tour that presents the opportunity to get really close to the birds! The adventure starts at the Old Harbour of Reykjavík and they only take one hour.
Lundey and Akurey are two small islands located in the Reykjavík bay area, only 15 minutes away from Reykjavík‘s Old harbour, from where we depart. The islands are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well known for their colorful birdlife. The island‘s shores are rocky but our RIB speedboats are perfect to get as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draft.
When we arrive to the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings. Our licensed guide shares lots of information about the puffins and other birds of interest that are often seen on the puffin watching tours. Other birds spotted include northern fulmars, gulls, arctic terns, and black guillemots.
Our puffin express by SPEEDBOAT are fun and educational, and they only take one hour, which is convenient for Iceland‘s tourists’ precious time.
