The worst company I have ever dealt with in Iceland. Non-communicative, dishonest and with zero sense of customer service. Whether you catch a fish or not isn't relevant. Horrific customer service is all you'll remember.

My grandson and I took this half day time while in Iceland. It was a lot of fun and didn’t consume the entire day. The crew issued binoculars so we could see the puffins. Everyone caught fish which the crew cooked when we got back to the dock. Can’t get any fresher codfish than that. The crew was very helpful and cheerful. All in all a great experience. Highly recommended.

My family of 7, ages 11-50, absolutely loved this experience. None of us fish, but Thor was patient and taught us how to cast a line and reel it in. Every one of caught multiple fish! Loved how they sliced up the fish immediately after we caught them, and then cooked it all up for lunch. Doesn't get fresher than that.

What a way to spend the morning! I can't say enough nice things about this pleasant trip. There were only 5 passengers on the boat (that could have held a lot more) the captain and the mate. The boat wasn't fancy, but it was functional and comfortable. The captain and mate taught each of us how to cast out our lines and moved the boat frequently if we did not get any bites at a location. As we caught the fish they filed them right behind us. All but one passenger caught a fish and several passengers caught multiple. When we got back to the dock the captain pulled out a grill and a tupperware of peeled boiled potatoes and he grilled the fish and potatoes right on the deck. We sat and ate our delicious and freshly caught lunch right there on the boat, overlooking the harbor and Harpa. A fantastic experience.

Went on a Sea Fishing Gourmet tour and it was amazing! The captain was knowledgeable and friendly. His daughter was our guide and was just as friendly and wonderful. The tours are small groups so it's nice and not overcrowded on the boat. Everyone in our group caught multiple fish! To top it all off, they prepare you a delicious meal right on board when you return to the harbor and you feast on your catch. We even had extra to take on the road with us which was great! We had a blast and I'd highly recommend this small family business for a fishing excursion. They let you have as much autonomy as you feel comfortable. I wasn't taking my fish off the hooks but others were and it was fine either way. Loved it and I'd definitely go back for another tour.
