As your boat chugs away from the shoreline, look out for the whales and seabirds for which Iceland is famous. The bay is one of the best places to see Icelands marine life, and minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbour porpoises are just a few of the creatures you may be lucky enough to see.

  • Exhilarating experience. But, should not be attempted if one is not reasonably fit physically, or if one is claustrophobic. Involves crawling on belly and on all 4s through some stretches, and if stuck, situation could turn a bit nasty. The guide is excellent and always present. But in confined spaces, if there is an emergency e.g. a sprain or worse, there's not much he can do.
