Snorkeling off the coasts in the Westman Islands can truly be an unforgettable experience

When circumstances are right, snorkelers can find themselves among puffins or other seabirds that sit on the surface.

There are numerous places off the islands that are ideal for snorkeling. The best way is to rent a boat since it can be precarious to go from the shore. There are no organized snorkeling outfitters in the Westman Islands but experienced snorkelers are advised to ask for assistance at the local tourist services where help will be provided.
