We went to iceland on our honey moon, with our leftover cash we had on our last night we decided to give the Sea-Angling a try. We were very very happy with the outcome, and couldn't have spent our last Icelandic Dollars any better! My Wife caught the first Atlantic cod of the trip probably 15 seconds in to dropping... More

Happen to go on the last day of this year fishing season. The fishes the otherr guys got were huge(5-7Kg), although I got a 2Kg one only, it was real fun. Despit the heavy rainfall during the trip. We ate the fishes (actually, they are other guys fishes), most of them were cod, and with some mackerel also.

Lots of people caught fish and we ate them as described. However we were virtually ignored by staff the entire time and those struggling weren't offered any advice or help. I'd expect at these prices for staff to spend more time helping those less experienced/ confident. Waves were stunning still but food after was little compensation for a bad time... More

It was my first fishing experience, however I managed to catch few nice fishes: huge cod and mackerel. After few hours of fishing we had amazing bbq if out catch, simply delicious! Highly recommend for families and friends and those who want to taste icelandic fish (can't be more fresh than that)! Great evening activity.

What a great day on the water! I booked the fishing trip for 17:00, but because it was such a beautiful day I decided to do the earlier whale watching trip as well.
