After an unsuccessful trip out to the beaches and cliffs in the Vik area, we booked the express tour with Mr. Puffin. We were whisked out to the islands in Reykjavik harbor and saw dozens of puffins within 10 mins of boarding the boat. The...More

Went on the Puffin tour with my wife. It was a great experience. The boat was really cool and fast. We saw a lot of puffins. They give you a wetsuit that keeps you dry and warm.

We felt safe and well looked after during this trip. The guide (a Portugese man who's name escapes me now) gave useful and interesting information about the birds, and answered questions capably. The driver kept us safe, but gave us a fun little spin before...More

We took this tour in August and it was terrific. There was a lot of attention to safety requirements and appropriate clothing was provided. The tour itself was very interesting and informative about the puffins and other bird life. I thoroughly recommend this activity.

Great tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and the skipper got us as close as you can get to the islands without having them fly away. Take your telephoto lenses. I used a 200-500 mm and kept it at 500mm most of the time. Loved...More

We had a nine-hour layover in Iceland and decided to spend our time with a walk through Reykjavik and a puffin cruise. It was chilly and damp and cloudy and glorious. They stashed our luggage in their office for us and helped us with our...More

We had a great time looking at the Puffins/puffin nests via the Mr. Puffin RIB (rubber inflatable boat). I highly recommend the RIB as opposed to the conventional boats. In the RIB, you can get up much closer to the Puffin nests. We did not...More

New to Puffins? This would be a nice 40 minute viewing from 100 feet or so off of one of several islands just outside of the harbor. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable - BUT if you want to SEE Puffins - make sure to...More
