What to expect
Select your preferred start time, and then cruise away from the Port of Reykjavik. The 15-minute journey to Akurey Island allows you to relax and listen to your guide’s commentary about the area’s flora and fauna. Circle around the island outcrop and watch for the puffins and other native seabirds like Arctic terns. Your state-of-the-art sightseeing boat is designed to reach tricky areas, allowing you to cruise close to Akurey’s rocky shoreline. When your circle of the island is complete, enjoy a few moments of peace and calm with the boat’s engine silenced. Use the time to take photos of the scenery and wildlife, and then cruise back to the Port of Reykjavik. Coffee is served on board as you go Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to the Port of Reykjavik for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded.
