Beautiful and exhilarating
Aug. 2021
This was so much better than a big-boat tour would have been. We were able to get up-close and personal with the environment, entering several beautiful sea caves in the process. The speed didn't keep us from getting plenty of gorgeous views, and the guide stopped frequently to describe landmarks, explain biological and geological processes, and share personal anecdotes that provided fascinating insight into the life of a lifelong islander.

The ride itself was smooth but exhilarating. We had opportunities to stop for photos, as well as a chance halfway through to trade places to get a different experience, which was nice.

The one downside was the mic was pretty quiet. We had to ask the guide to turn it up, and after that we could hear everything fine enough, but it wasn't exactly loud and clear.

Overall, though, the experience was fantastic. One of my favorite parts of our entire visit to Iceland. Would definitely do something like this again.

100/10 stars, an absolute MUST
Aug. 2021 • Friends
If you are coming to Iceland, this boat tour better be the #1 on your to-do list! The boat was fast and fun, but I felt SO safe and secure. No hard wave crashes or bumps, the captain was an exceptional driver. Also, the tour guide gals were the so kind and knowledgeable. Our tour guide was named Thelma, I give her 10 stars. She was so amazing, she helped us get our safety suits on as well as help us on and off the boat. Not to mention, the sights to see are out of this world. Insane rock formations in the ocean, paired with stories about Icelandic mythology and legends. My husband and I are so glad we did this tour. Out of everything we saw and did in Iceland, this tour is unforgettable and easily the coolest experience of my life!

GREAT - safe and fun!
Jul. 2021
This tour is a must-do! Our captain is a capable sea captain and we loved crossing over to the small islands close to Westman. It was something we could not have done on our own. We learned about the seabirds, seals, and the history behind the small hunting homes on these tiny out-laying islands. Really wonderful! We also went along outside of the Westman island itself. Places you can not goto by kayak. They pointed out cool things in the rocks. Really wonderful!

My 11-year-old daughter loved it. It may not be the best for children who are fearful of boats or water.

Amazing rib boat tour with excellent captain and tour guide
We had an excellent boat trip. We were so lucky that we even spotted whales, which was totally unexpected, and our captain was so kind to follow them for a while before continuing the normal tour. Irena was a very good and pleasant tour guide. Thank you so much for the amazing experience!

RIB boat experience was fantastic!
What a wonderful way to see these majestic islands! Me and my teen and adult children loved this experience. Our tour guide was great and informative! We all loved it and thought it was a good difference from the ferry or another large boat option.

Must-Do Tour in Vestmannaeyjar
Jun. 2021 • Couples
We had the most AMAZING day with Halli and Hjördis from Seabirds and Cliff Adventures Tours (saca.is). If you go to Vestmannaeyjar you must take a tour with them. Halli is born and raised in Vestmannaeyjar and knows it inside out.

Fantastic island tour!!
Fantastic way to see the island. It’s a fast-paced one hour thrill ride to see the sights from the water that doesn’t disappoint. The friendly and capable crew make sure you’re suited up in warm and waterproof attire before sending you out in the bright yellow RIB boat. Then the fun begins. As you glide across the water, the DJ gets the party started and the guide fills you in on local history and folk lore. And how CJ’s hair manages to stay so perfect is a mystery.

Fun on the water
Great time - CJ was a fantastic guide - mixing in folklore, wildlife and geology along the way. Riding waves with music was better than a roller coaster!

A genuine immersion into the islands and their culture
May 2021
This tour was a magnificent experience, thanks to the super-qualified crew; guys who have been sailing around the islands since the Surtsey-eruptions in the 1960s, from long before their parents knew what they were up to. As a result they know every skerry, cliff, cave and island, current, wave and wind in these waters; not to mention the wealth of stories from more than 1100 years of human habitation on the islands in addition to the geographical history of the different eruptions and lava-flows that have built up the island cluster through the millennia. The birds and fish and seals seem to be a part of their inner-circle of friends. In addition there was a surprising event manager on board who made sure that the high-point of the tour became sooo memorable!
