Overview

Mr. Puffin is Reykjavik's premier birdwatching tour operator. Guiding tours from the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik to the incredible puffins and sea birds on Faxafloi bay. We operate both tours on conventional bird watching boats and our very special custom made RIB boats. The RIB boats are very fast and get you very close, without disturbing the birds.

The boat tour to see the puffins was interesting and fun but overpriced. We did whole day excursions in Iceland that were the equivalent cost and this tour lasted one hour, start to finish.

Fun and informative tour, where you really get up close to those tourist favourites, as well as get interesting information. Only problem was to hear the guide properly from all positiones in the boat.

Me. Puffins Express boats really deliver rain or shine! Our group of 4 had a wonderful time seeing and taking photos of puffins. It was simply a trip to see the puffins, not to learn much about them as the boat’s motor is too noisy....More

Boat ride was nice and the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful but for a trip that is considered an “up close and personal” tour of puffins I expected to be able to get a much better view of them. Of course in nature there...More

We took this tour as I was very excited to see the puffins as this is the time of year that they are in Iceland. The boat ride itself was a fun ride and although we saw puffins flying over our heads we were too...More

We had a wonderful time on a Puffin Express tour with Mr. Puffin. The RIB vessel was comfy and fun to ride in, and the suites, gloves, and goggles we got to wear were welcome in the rain! It was amazing to see so many...More
