Heimaey Circle Boat Tour (from Westman Islands)


This fun and educative boat tour sets of from Heimaey harbor and is therefore the perfect day tour from the Westman Islands, whether your day tripping or spending a few days on the island.

The port itself is historic as it was almost lost during the volcanic eruption in 1973 but the tours focus will be on the colorful ocean caves, the newly formed volcanic island of Surtsey and other islands of Westman Islands, and the lava coastline with its deep bird cliffs.

You can observe variety of seabird and occasionally whales. The trip ends by sailing into the Cliff Cave near the harbor, where you will listen to one of the crew or the captain himself play instrumental music and enjoy the unique acoustic in this cave before returning to Heimaey harbor.



Please keep in mind that all trips are depending on weather conditions and wildlife sighting cannot be guaranteed. Sometimes it is not possible to circumnavigate, but we guaranty that you will experience seeing the bird cliffs from as many different views as possible.
