Fishing is aboard self-drive boats and Dave Lewis says - without a doubt the boats provided by Iceland Sea Angling are the most sea worthy, comfortable and well equipped self-drive boats I have fished aboard anywhere in the world, and I have fished aboard a lot of self-drive’s. Powered by 130hp Volvo Penta stern drive, the boats will fish four anglers in absolute comfort and safety, even as many as five or six. Each boat is provided with an automatically inflating life raft, 25 watt VHF-DSC radio with built in distress calling facility, A.I.S (Automatic Identification. System) tracking, a quality Garmin fish finder chart plotter, and everything else you need for a safe day afloat. Further, the company insist that each time you set sail you book out with the local coast guard confirming the boat number and how many persons on board, and that you then contact them again on your return to harbour. Top speed was around 18-19knots, with an ideal cruising speed of around 15 knots.
A small pub and restaurant, and a well-stocked shop are close by and all necessary items of tackle can be bought on site, rods and reels are available for hire as are good quality flotation suits.
Transfers for 2018 will be via luxury coach with on-board toilet. This is because of the unreliability of the domestic flight due to adverse weathers conditions.
The coach will depart Keflavik airport at 17:00 (possibly later if the flights are delayed). After approximately 2 hours the coach will make a stop for 30 minutes for clients to have a break and buy some basic provisions if required. The journey takes approximately 6 hours and the coach should arrive at your destination around 23:00.
The coach will depart at 08:00 and should arrive at Keflavik airport at around 14:00.
International flights should have departure time of 16:00 or later.
The coach will be of a good standard with toilet on board and a representative from Iceland Sea Angling will be on board to answer questions etc.

Dave Lewis recently returned from Sudavik and reports the following - On our first session afloat we were joined by Henri Karier, the camps excellent head guide, who took us to a spot inside of the fjord just twenty minutes run from harbour. Here Henri and my friend Terry Thomas fished a selection of pirks and large shads in the usual style in 120m of water, while I rigged a 120g Storm Ultra Shad on a medium spinning rod matched with a Shimano Saragossa 5000 fixed spool loaded with 20lbBS PowerPro. In no time at all lures fished near the bottom were catching decent cod weighing well into double figures, while my Storm Ultra Shad was almost immediately nailed by a fast running, deep diving fish that I quickly guessed was a decent coalfish. That first coalie weighed over 30lb and was one of five 30lb+ coalfish I caught in just two hours fishing, the best a new personal best that went 35lb 4oz. Henri soon switched to similar tactics to me and also caught some very big coalfish. A move inshore to fish bait on the drift over rough ground very quickly produced big wolffish. We fished at Sudavik for three days, with our boat and most others based at the camp catching impressive fish each day, notably big coalfish that were averaging well over 20lb, with many over 30lb. Cod to 30lb, lots of big wolffish along with haddock and redfish were also caught. I had taken a few packets of frozen worms with me, and these very quickly produced nice dabs from the boat. Fishing from the harbour pontoons also produced lots of big dabs.
