North Norway: Orca whales

Gallery "Orca whales North Norway"

Gallery "Tour ship Duen III"

Gallery "Tour ship Ulla Rinman"

This journey offers to take snorkel divers (free divers) and nature photographers on an adventure trip to wintry northern Norway. Large amounts of herring gather here, attracting hundreds of whales intent on hunting them. They provide an extraordinary spectacle of nature – but due to the cold temperatures in the air and in the water, snow, ice, limited daylight, and rough sea, it can be challenging to the spectators.

Our base camps for this trip will be the Norwegian sailing vessel DUEN III and the former rescue vessel for the Swedish Rescue Society ULLA RINMAN. On both ships an experienced local crew will take care for your safety. Our guides will use a fast zodiac to take divers and photographers where the action is. Between dives, you can warm up again on the ship and enjoy hot drinks and snacks at the heated lounge areas. All meals will be served aboard and the nights we will spend at a fishery harbor and there is a very good chance to experience the northern lights Aurora borealis!

This tour offers snorkeling instead of scuba diving because the Orca whales will not tolerate open-circuit scuba equipment in their proximity.
