About Ribsafari
Ribsafari - Boat Tours in Vestmannaeyjar offers fun and exciting entertainment in Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar). We operate both RIB Boats as well as a passenger boat. Sailing around the islands in a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) is an experience you won't forget. You can choose to go on a one hour tour or a two hour tour. We will visit the elephant rock, go into sea caves, see puffins and other sea birds and more. On the two hour tour there are more changes to see also whales and seals. We will stop in between and the guide will tell you stories. On the passenger boat we sail around the main island, Heimaey and you will get guidance along the way, see puffins, visit a sea cave, see the elephant rock and more. We will tell you about our nature, volcanic eruption, wildlife, history etc.

We went on the one-hour rib boat tour and loved it! The water was a little rough and rolling, but we had such a good time. The captain was obviously a child of the 1980's, because the music he chose was from that time and awesome. :-) We learned a lot about the rock features and the island in general, and we would definitely do this activity again!

What an amazing time we had on the 1 hour tour! They had great music and rocked the boat on beat to it which was super fun and you could see everybody smile their ears off during those parts. The guides extremely professional and fun, we saw hundreds of puffins and a seal that kept poking his head out of the water to check us out, the views of the islands were truly gorgeous. Also the suits they gave us were practically brand new and they keep them very clean. Definitely recommend it for everybody!

AMAZING!!!! In three trips to Iceland, the rib boat tour is top is the list. The staff was simply phenomenal. They went out of their way to make our tour special. Fun, informative. I also greatly appreciated the cleanliness of the boat and gear. Do not miss this tour if you go to Vestmannaeyjar! In fact, go to Vestmannaeyjar just so you can do this tour.

This was a great boat tour. I booked the 1 hour tour and we saw a lot in that hour. We went in and around several of the islands, saw a bunch of puffins and went in several caves. The guide was very knowledgeable. I lucked out and had a beautiful sunny day for the tour so that only enhanced the experience.
