If you're into bird watching - or just fancy a boat ride out through narrow sounds, then the Vestmanna Birdcliffs and Grottos boat trip is for you. The boat departs from near the Tourist Information Centre in Vestmanna (itself worth a visit - for gifts and the restaurant). When we took the trip in summer 2018, the boat was filled with guests, so it could be a good idea to book in advance from the operator (see link). We were lucky to go on a dry day, but I would recommend you take full waterproofs in case of a rain shower if you wish to be on-deck. The boat itself has a large seated cabin if you want to be indoors. Hard hats are provided as the boat nears rocks and cliffs. The trip is about 2 hours in duration, and there is a live guided commentary in English (I seem to remember other languages were offered) - related to things to look out for. This could be geographical features, information regarding local farming techniques, interesting snippets about homes on the cliffs, and of course a wealth of information regarding the bird life. We saw countless puffins and other birds on our trip - you won't be disappointed. Children under 6 are free.
