Iceland Day 3 : Whale watching

After a pleasant drive to Reykjavík and a walk around the harbour we picked a boat to go go whale watching both looked very good but picked on Andreas a good looking boat and set sail. From leaving the harbour had nice views back of Reykjavík and the mountains around us. Once we got further out in the boats had lots of birdlife at first mainly Eider Ducks still in moult but then as we got further out lots of Iceland Gulls mixed with Gannets, Fulmars, Common Gulls, Black-headed Gulls and a few Razorbills. After getting to the deeper area of the bay we had sightings of a one possible two Minky Whales though hard to tells because its more of a diving whale so only seen briefly then further along we had  nice but distance views of a group of porpoise.
