This tour combines a unique fishing experience topped off with a meal of your catch!
The sea-angling gourmet tour commences at our ticket office in the old harbour in downtown Reykjavík. Meet our guide on board one of our smaller boats (Maggi Dan
or Elding II
), docked on a floating pier in front of our Whale Watching Centre. We'll take you to the best fishing grounds in the bay and teach you all the best techniques. On board you'll get all the fishing equipment you need and a rain jacket to keep you dry.
Once the boat is back in the harbour our staff will fillet the fish for you and show you to MAR restaurant. There our chefs will prepare a nice meal out of your catch in their unique way - if you catch a lot you can even gather your friends for a nice feast (additional fees apply)! In case you don't catch anything you are still able to enjoy a nice meal at MAR restaurant.

Our sea angling tours are focused mainly on the southern part of Faxaflói, just off Reykjavík. These fishing grounds have attracted Icelandic fishermen for centuries and been an important source of nourishment for the locals. Our captains know the area better than any other and guarantee you a fantastic experience.
