What to expect
  • 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.

On our family vacation to Iceland, I booked this fishing charter for my husband. While the weather wasn't great, we had such a great time! My husband caught a dozen fish (I caught my first 2 fish!) and the crew grilled what the boat caught with some potatoes, as we headed back to shore! We even stopped for a bit to catch some whales breaching and swimming around us! Such a wonderful Iceland fishing experience for us!

There were 10 of us fishing on the boat. It was fun, and unique, but touristy. Wear waterproof clothes as you’ll get wet. We caught at least 40 fish and they cleaned and cooked them on the way back. It was a terrific experience.

We went on the evening sea angling trip and had an absolutely wonderful time! Only one other couple had booked the same trip, yet Special Tours honored the reservations and took us out.

We were on the Rosin, a fast boat, and Captain Jon put us on fish with almost every stop. His mate, Iga, cleaned the largest of them and then cooked the fish with some potatoes for the freshest seafood meal you could have ... on the boat!

The scenery was beautiful, the boat was comfortable, and Jon and Iga were both so helpful and just enjoyable to spend some time with, as was the other couple we met, Bart and Tess from the Netherlands.

The fishing tours are always a staff favorite in the summer months - we love eating fresh fish grilled straight from the sea!

The boat is OK. The fishing equipment is low end: 4ft pole, conventional reel, 2 hooks in red and black tubes, 8 oz sinker. All knots are ugly with long tails sticking out. 45 minutes ride 1hr fishing, frying fish on the way back. 4 keepers whole trip of 15 anglers, about 9 shorts.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that the fishing equipment was not up to standard on your tour - we will forward this review to our angling captain as we prepare for next year's spring and summer seasons. Thank you for sailing with Special Tours, and we hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Iceland. Kind regards, Special Tours Crew

This was the best day ever for our group! 7 colleagues doing something completely new to all of us & loving every minute of it! We couldn’t believe how many fish we were able to catch! Amazing! Our guide/captain was a wonderful guy who worked his tail off supervising all of us, while gutting & cleaning our “dinner-to-be”. Which he then cooked to perfection. It was delicious & magical. I highly recommend this tour!

This was such a fun tour! We were two parents and a teen daughter, and the seas had been rough for a few days prior to this, but our tour was at 5pm, and things had gotten better by then. The office and boats are easy to find in the harbor, and they strongly encouraged us to wear the jackets provided in order to keep the water and fish off of our clothes. Otherwise, we were warm in fleece, gloves, hats, and waterproof/windproof jackets. COVID was still affecting tourism in June, and we only had nine passengers on board, including four kids. We caught so many fish, and I think the kids caught the most! My daughter has Aspergers, and the captain was so kind to her in helping with her fish. Both the captain and female crew member were awesome. I was seasick several times, but none of the other passengers got sick, and the crew was so helpful! It was a little miserable for me at times; however, I still caught fish, LOL. Everyone is different, so this should not deter you from taking this tour. It is great fun for a few hours!

Took my father-in-law fishing on his 86th birthday and he said it was by far the best birthday of his life! The crew were helpful, knowledgeable, and fun! We were out on the ocean for about 2 1/2 hours and caught some cod and mackerel. They cooked it for us right there on the boat! I highly recommend this tour if you’re looking to get out and have some fun fishing.

My husband and FIL went on this for 2.5 hours and caught a TON of fish and it was just a small group of four. They had a blast and came back with leftovers!

This was a great experience for the family. The crew was awesome. They were helpful and patient (with those of us fishing for the first time). They made the trip fun they had great personalities, theyhad music playing, and after we caught some fish, they grilled it and we had fresh self caught dinner on the trip back in to port.
Great experience and beautiful views of Reykjavík!
