I've been in Iceland. We saw Orcas and Humpbacks. It was over in the west with a company called Laki Tours. The boat departs from Olafsvik but the office and associated cafe (which is worth visiting) is in Grundarfjordur.

When we were on the south of the Island at Dyrhólaey Lighthouse we saw tonnes of Minke Whales in the bay.

It's also worth going and seeing the Seals at Illugastadir. They're one the best animals to just sit and watch, they were one of the highlights of the island. There's also some interesting stories about events that happened at the now ruined farm 200 years ago.

Worst thing is about Iceland (the country) is they actually sell Iceland (Povvo shop) food. It’s all price marked in English so your £1 Iceland (Kerry katona) pizza actually sells for £8 worth of their Icelandic (country) money.
