“Great trip around the Islands”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Ribsafari speedboat tour was a really fun way to see around the Islands and get to poke in and out of all the little caves and hidden places. The guides are really friendly and a lot of fun, they make you feel very comfortable right off the bat. The lady who runs of the operation and does the commentary on the boat was friendly and funny, her part was quite memorable, as was the smoked puffin that they let you try on the boat. Overall it was a great way to spend some time on the island. They know all the little secret places that you wouldn't see otherwise, most of which are pretty breathtaking. If you have kids, or are a big kid yourself, the boat ride itself was a lot of fun and is something that will be enjoyed. Five stars and fully recommended.

“Totally Insane - Adrenalin + a Unique View of the Vestmannaeyjar”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I have to admit that I had my doubts about crashing around on a high powered boat in the wind and icy waves...

We had an amazing experience. The guys at RibSafari gave us a great survival suit to keep us warm and dry. And the boat ride as exhilarating but never felt dangerous. Crashing over the waves was worth the trip to the Vestmannaeyjar alone.

The views we got from the boat were great - better than we got from the land. And the guides were very knowledgeable giving us interesting insights.

Don't be put off it it rains - it will probably add to the excitement. I loved the trip so much I would definitely do it again!

“Great memories, fun and breathtaking views.”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Our family decided to treat ourselves to a Ribsafari tour during our last full day in Iceland. As far as the kids is concerned, we left the best for last. The family had a joyful time as we bounced up and down the waves and marveled at the beauty of the island. For me, to see thousands of puffins flying like clumsy bats was worth the price. In addition, our hostess, Alma, was funny, engaging and connected with adults and children with ease. It felt that I was hanging out with an old friend. The warmth we experience was not typical of mainland iceland. If you travel to this amazing country do not forget to spend a couple of days in Vestmannaeyjar islands. And if you want to have a great time do not forget to book a tour with Ribsafari.
