This was an amazing adventure, where we sped up the fjord with no promise of whales but we saw several and quite close. They provided suits for us to wear but make sure you have lots of layers on underneath

The whales don't show up until spring. They migrate south. We saw 2 in September and the guide said they were making their way around Iceland to go south. They come back in Spring. March may be too early.
