CATCH YOUR OWN DINNER
Have you ever dreamt of heading out to sea and fishing for your own dinner? Or are you perhaps already an avid fisherman who casts his or her line at any given opportunity? It makes no difference, because this popular sea angling tour is fun for everybody, beginners and seasoned fishermen alike.
Once you are out there on the open seas of Faxaflói Bay, breathing in the fresh Arctic air and have caught your first fish of the day, we are absolutely certain that this is an experience you will not soon forget. We have a longstanding experience of fishing in the Bay and sail out towhere the fish are plentiful. We supply all the gear needed and teach you all the best tricks to catch a fish. If you should need a jacket, we also have rain jackets to keep you dry. Our tours are always fruitful and we commonly catch all the main signature fish-types found inIcelandic fishing grounds including; wolf fish, cod, haddock, mackerel and pollack.
The golden rule applies here, whatever you catch, you keep. However, if you prefer not to have a load of cod in your hotel room then you can donate it to the ladies in our Café Bauja and they happily give you a cup of coffee in exchange.
At the end of the tour you can barbecue your catch on board, completely fresh and fuss-free or take it to MAR restaurant to enjoy a fully cooked meal.
All our sea angling tours begin from our ticket office by the Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavik. You can purchase tickets or exchange your voucher if you have booked a prepaid trip. Your guide will meet you on board our sea angling boat, Faxi, which is docked at the floating pier in front of the Whale Watching Centre.
