Overview
More
Ocean adventures offers fun puffin and sea angling boat tours from Stykkisholmur. Our boat is a typical Icelandic fishing boat and therefore he is very suitable for sea angling and he is specially good for nature-and bird watching because you have a chance to get closer to the ocean and the birds than in many other bigger boats. We put ambition in offering excellent service for everyone.

This puffin tour was excellent! The small sized boat allowed us to get up close to the nesting birds and we stayed long enough to watch and photograph them well. The small boat also meant fewer passengers and no jostling for position. A bonus was...More

Got a hold of this company (wife and husband) because they were highly rated on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. We asked the Captain if he could find a seal and he did on the way out to the fishing area. Once we started fishing,...More

During our trip in the Western part of Iceland, we were looking for a sea angling tour nearby and we found this hidden-gem agency. The weather was perfect, we were only two but they kindly accepted us to go fishing without any change in fees...More

A great tour: we saw lots of puffins, as well as other seabirds, a seal and an eagle. The views from the boat are spectacular and we saw far more puffins much closer to the boat than we did in Reykjavik. I'd definitely recommend this...More

After doing web research, I knew they had a departure at 8pm. On Sunday the 17th, I showed up at 630 pm to book. Place was closed. NBD, you don't need office staff for a boat, but I never found anyone. On Monday the 18th,...More

This trip went way beyond our expectations. We’re staying in a small fishing town (Arnastapi) and thought a fishing trip would be fitting. We were worried about the cold weather, but we bundled up and it was gorgeous. The views and the ocean were absolutely...More
