Now, this is what some call the high-light of the Fantasy tour on Breiafjarareyjar islands :) - the throwing out of the net. This was actually quite exciting, 2 members of the crew threw a net into the ocean and lovely girls waited with knives - eh! Everybody on the boat watched as the net was drawn in to see what they had caught. The catch was quite impressive: sea-urchins, starfish, scallops, crabs and shells - to sum it up "The fruit of the ocean" :)
The girls and the crew opened up the sea-urchins and scallops and offered them to the group - fresh and raw and free of charge! Sea-urchin roe are considered a delicacy and an aphrodisiac :) People were also offered a knife in case you wanted to try to open them up yourself.
For sale was white-wine in small bottles (ISK 900 per bottle). I opted out but ended up being given a bottle by a tour-leader who had pre-paid for the wine and had miscalculated the number of people in his group :)
After the feast the boat headed home for Stykkishˇlmur.
It was an awesome trip :D And equally popular amongst Icelanders and foreign tourists.
Address: On Breiafjarar islands.
