Whales frequent the coast around Iceland.

The great creatures of the ocean can be seen regularly in the outer edges of Reykjavik harbour. Mink whales can been seen on most whale watching tours. Porpoises are just as easily seen. If you are lucky you could catch a breaching hump back as they frolic outside the harbour waters.

Photographers will do well with a fast camera. A long lens is popular, but a wide angle lens could also work if you are lucky enough to get close to these massive creatures.
