Whale Watching Extreme

Fast paced power tour on powerful RIB boats

We will race out the fjord between the mountains, only slowing down momentarily for the spectacular sights on the way. We look out for puffins and other seabirds, and search for whales in the fjord. On our RIB boats, we have the possibility to cover much more area in the same amount of time, hence making the search for the whales more effective. We have been lucky so far. Last year, we had a 100% sighting rate from June to October. But whales are living beings with a will of their own, so nothing must be taken for granted. Hopefully, we find whales and then linger, giving you an opportunity to enjoy the company of those magnificent creatures and some breathtaking photo-ops.
