We booked a private tour (outside of normal tour season) and were worried about the weather forecast. We had an absolutely amazing day fishing! It was perfect! Thank you for a great adventure!

Let me begin by saying that I love to fish. I have been fishing for over 60 years. The trip with Capt. Olafsson was a gift (that I ended up paying for) because my family knows that if I am anywhere near water I am disappointed if I am unable to fish, even if only for a few hours.

We met up with Capt. Olafsson in the afternoon. You will be bottom fishing using tackle that was, well, broken junk that I would have donated to Neptune quite some time ago. However, the tackle served the purpose and everyone on board caught fish. We caught more than our share of Cod, Haddock, and Ling (well over 40 lbs. of fish) in under 3 hours. Not too shabby.

After returning to the dock, the good Capt. fired up a gas grill and cooked us a fresh fish dinner that couldn't be beat. All in all, everyone had a great afternoon and were able to see Reykjavik from a different perspective. The good Capt. was most accommodating. It was easy for me to see that he had done this a few thousand times before.

Took my son on a great 3 hour tour around Faxaflói outside of Reykjavik. The weather was great, no waves and we cought about 20 fish each (we actually lost count). The captain was friendly and helped us bait and release the fish that we cought. After we docked he prepared an amazing fish stew and we went home with a large bag filled with fresh fish. A trip to remember!

We wanted an Icelandic fishing experience and we found it: crew is amazing, went with family for fishing and visit the spectacular puffin island. We had a lot of fun because we caught a lot of fishes and the baby’s got freed (which is reasonable and right) and only kept big ones which are ready to be eaten. Also the dinner was extremely well done and satisfying.

We could fish more than 10 cods without any practice or skills! The captain was very friendly and even cooked for us. He also made fish fillet for us to take home. We had a very good time. Beautiful view, great experience and would definitely recommend.

Went on a private fishing trip with 3 friends and Captain Kjartan on Sept. 29. The weather was rough, but the Captain was still able to take us out on the water and helped us catch fish. We caught 15 fish and a wide variety of species in our half day trip. The Captain was also quick to take us to new spots if the current spot was slow, which we appreciated. Prior to the trip, the Captain was very responsive via email and accommodating with our day/time to make sure we were able to have a good trip.

When we returned to the dock, the Captain was kind enough to not just grill up some fish, but cooked us an entire meal! A variety of fish, potatoes and vegetables, cooked with his secret recipe. If Captain Kjartan decides to stop fishing, he can definitely become a chef! We really appreciated the Captain and had a great day fishing. Would definitely use his service again. Thank you!

We had an amazing fishing trip on August 5, 2022! Our family of 5 went out in the morning and each of us caught several fish. Every time the line dropped into the water, the fish were biting! It was SO FUN, and our three teenagers loved it! Kjartan went out of his way to make it an enjoyable experience for all of us. We read several reviews when deciding who to contact for a fishing trip, and his reviews were the best around, and he exceeded our expectations. We can’t say enough about how great he was. He baited our hooks, took fish off as soon as we reeled them in, and if there was a lull in the bite, he was quick to get us back on fish. Kjartan then had our fish ready for us to take home. He was the best guide we’ve fished with. He was accommodating, knowledgeable and and an expert fisherman. We would fish with him again any time!! It was fun to see the puffins on our way in, too. Thank you, Kjartan, for a day to remember! Book this trip - you won’t regret it!

Great fishing trip! I took my family of 4 out with Sigridur in July 2022 and he did a fantasitc job putting us on fish. He has the experience and knows the waters around Iceland. He cooked us atlantic cod served with veggies and potatoes after the trip and it was delicious! I have been on several sport fishing boats and I would return to Reykjavik Sea Adventures. They went out of the way to accomidate us and make sure we were happy. Looking forward to our return some day.
