This is the best trip for people all ages. There were three people from Ribtours that we met. The first guy was in the booth when we got there and was an absolute gentleman. One of his boats was out of service since he had an issue with the engine, he shuffled people to different hours to make sure we could all enjoy the trip. The next two people were a lady who gave us the explanation of all the rock formations, took us to the cave and basically entretained us. She was an absolute star, energetic, nice and just great with the kids. We were fortunate enough to ride with a family with young kids and my son had an absolute blast asking questions and screaming to go faster, faster. The other guy was the driver, an older man with the energy of a teenager. He helped us put our suits on and get on and off the bus. All three were very accomodating and nice to us. My son said this was "the best day of his life".

An amazing boat trip! Children 7 and 12 absolutely loved the trip from start to finish. It was exciting, informative and a great way to get close to the seabirds. Loads of puffins plus eider ducks and chicks.

Must do in Westman Island. This is one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. One can explore the breath-taking view of the sea caves and enjoy the awesome entertainment by the crew. The boat operator maneuvers so well with sharp turn and high speed that your heart will pound with joyous excitement. The very humorous tour guide lady will entertain you throughout the ride.

This was a nice trip and a great way to see the islands surrounding Vestmannaeyjar! The ribboat is a lot of fun and we even saw a seal chilling out on a rock.
