IF you come do Iceland in the summertime and don't see the adorable little Puffins.. did you really come to Iceland in the summer!? MUST DO if you're in Iceland during the summer for a few reasons. The area around the Reykjavík Harbour offers a stunning view of the nature surrounding the capital and all the little islands out on the fjord, you will also see other wildlife so this tour is both an adventure and super fun!

The boat is prepped with anything you might need, like a restroom, a cafeteria where you can buy drinks and snacks and it has both an inside and an outside ares!

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Jenny2784
We had a wonderful time on the puffin tour!

The crew was wonderful and all of the gear provided. As an added bonus, our guide took photos which they shared with us after the cruise. We highly recommend this tour for families and any eager to see the puffins during their stay in Iceland.

Very patient and caring crew

The tour was a perfect amount of time for small children. The gentleman onboard were so caring and willing to help the children spot the animals and answer questions. A perfect outing for the family!

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Littledebbie30
We had the best puffin watching experience!

My boyfriend and I booked an early boat ride (the classic puffin). We were told as we were getting on the boat that we will have our own private tour because it was early and I’m assuming most people do their tours later in the day. The woman guiding the tour was a future marine biologist who was informative and made our experience enjoyable by telling us unique facts about the puffins and taking her own pictures along with ours and sending them to us as well! The boat pulls as close to “puffin island” as possible and you can see them flying right over. We were lucky enough to have 2 of them right behind the boat and got clear photos of a couple of them! I would recommend this tour to anyone who is traveling in Iceland. It was a memorable time for both of us and it happened to be on my birthday morning as well! Thanks again!
