About Ribsafari
Ribsafari - Boat Tours in Vestmannaeyjar offers fun and exciting entertainment in Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar). We operate both RIB Boats as well as a passenger boat. Sailing around the islands in a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) is an experience you won't forget. You can choose to go on a one hour tour or a two hour tour. We will visit the elephant rock, go into sea caves, see puffins and other sea birds and more. On the two hour tour there are more changes to see also whales and seals. We will stop in between and the guide will tell you stories. On the passenger boat we sail around the main island, Heimaey and you will get guidance along the way, see puffins, visit a sea cave, see the elephant rock and more. We will tell you about our nature, volcanic eruption, wildlife, history etc.

We did the 2 hour RIB boat tour, and it was amazing! Loved seeing all around the Heimaey and the little islands where all the birds nest. Our tour guide, "Mike," and the captain told excellent stories about the history of the islands as well as the wildlife found there. I loved the personal stories she told! This tour was one of the highlights of our day on the island. I highly recommend!

This was one of the highlights of my trip! Stunning views and a fun ride. The guide was very knowladgeable and the sailor was impressively skilled. I never once felt scared or in danger while there. We were on the one hour trip and plan on going to one of the longer trips when we come to Westman islands again 😀 soo much fun! Truly recommend if you have spare time, want to take pictures, or are an adreniline junkie or simply looking for something to do!

We took two hours ribsafari and it was so great. The nature is stunning and the guide was excellent. The speed is high and the music is high and make this trip exciting. The sailor was so skilled. We were a bit afraid to become seasick but you get the fresh air in your head so it was no problem at all One of the best experience ever.
