We visited Iceland February 2013 and managed to book two places on this trip from our hotel. The trips run form the Hotel Framnes, in Grundarfjordur, about 3 hours drive from Reykjavik. We were staying on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula (where the town for these trips is located), which is a very beautiful and remote part of Iceland.
The crew gave us wonderful all-in-one suits which kept us very warm on our two hour trip. They assured us they would see Orcas and we did. (I think almost every boat does!) They have a spotter who locates them so the boat approaches, but not too close. We saw about 16, there were two pods in the area, mothers and young, males, all showing different kinds of behaviour. It was a real privledge to watch and be informed by the guide what was going on. We could all stand throughout the trip and move around so we could get good viewpoints, all very laid back and unhurried.
We would really recommend this trip, well worth the money, the crew were all very friendly and we had a great time. Amazing views back to the shore with the moody snow-covered mountains behind!
