You may be thinking, "What the heck, Al? It's not whale season in Iceland! Everybody knows that!"

Or maybe you're not thinking that. But if you are, you would be correct. However, there is one operation that suits people up in super warm coveralls and takes them out into the bay for some whale-watching. You won't ever see the minke whales, but it's always a possibility, though your chances are significantly lower due to migration patterns, to see humpbacks, orcas, white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and a variety of birds.

Even without a sighting, I figured it would all be well worth it, as it was a stunningly beautiful day day for a boat trip in Iceland. Again, windy, but that wasn't really an element with which I was concerning myself.

If it doesn't affect the well-being of the camera, then I'm ok with it.
