A Reykjavik fishing tour that's fun for everyone. The tour commences at our ticket office by the Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. There you can buy tickets or exchange a voucher for a prepaid trip.
This tour is a must do for first timers and experienced fishermen alike. Just breathing in the fresh air, being out in the open ocean and catching your first fish of the day make this an experience you'll never forget.
One of our expert guides will meet you on board one of our smaller vessels (Maggi Dan
or Elding II
), docked at the floating pier in front of the Whale Watching Centre. We will take you to the best fishing grounds the bay offers, teach you all the best techniques while sharing our experience and personal insights. On board you'll get all the fishing equipment you need and a rain jacket to keep you dry.
The most commonly caught fish is catfish, cod, haddock, mackerel and pollack and of course what you catch, you can keep. At the end of the tour our crew can BBQ a small taste of the fresh catch for you on board. Read more about our most common catches here
