We were there 40 minutes before and everyone else was already putting on their suits. We recommend wearing two layers and definitely taking a hat and gloves with you. Gloves and glasses are available on site. Luckily we sat in the back, so it wasn't quite as stormy for us. First we saw puffins and later a humpback whale, a minke whale and many white-beaked dolphins that even had babies with them. Rebekka (guide) always told us something when we stopped to look out. We would have liked it if she had spoken louder. The captain, she and the other staff were very friendly. Unfortunately, while waiting for the whales, we kept getting nauseous because the boat then rocked a lot. We had taken travel pills, but they didn't help us and only caused us more problems because of the tiredness. We also recommend the rib boat tour because of the ticket for the museum :)

This was a last minute decision to do a boat tour in Reykjavik, I booked all my tours in Iceland through Get Your Guide. The RIB boat was so much fun, not too choppy but still thrilling. Our guides on the boat we’re very knowledgeable and super friendly. We did this late in the afternoon and only 2 other people were on our boat. We saw a lot of puffins and did 2 different stops. I would highly recommend this especially if you are unsure about being on a RIB boat. The tour provider has coverall for everyone which really helps with blocking the wind.

We saw lots of puffins plus other birds including skuas stealing fish from the puffins mouth. Mike was very knowledgeable. We got close enough to shoot video and got great photos. Would love to stay longer!! The boat ride was fun. Not too fast.

We were very lucky and got to see the whales lunge feeding which isn't common. The captain did a terrific job ensuring we were in the right place at the right time and the guide was very knowledgeable. Also really liked being a smaller boat.

Loved it! The RIB boat was a supper fun ride, the guide gave us lots of interesting information (both about Puffins and about Iceland) and we saw thousands of Puffins!! I highly recommed this tour.!
