GRIMSEY ISLAND, Iceland –  Tourists are flocking to the north of Iceland to participate in the latest craze, puffin snorkeling.

The birds are one of the main attractions on an island located on the Arctic Circle.

Now a company is offering snorkeling, so tourists could not just take pictures of puffins, they could swim with them.

Puffins are not very agile flyers, but they are impressive divers, and they dive into the water to go after food.

The tour operator says puffins are curious, and after the divers go into the water and things settle down, they will approach their visitors
