Every direction we could see whales spouting in the middle distance. The boat would take us right up to them to watch them. The low sun caught the spray from these majestic beasts forming rainbows that danced briefly before us when we faced south. Yes...More
Loved this whale watching trip. We wanted to see whales but were hesitant because of the fact that it’s already mid October. We still decided to give it a try. We got super warm overalls and saw plenty of whales! The captain was trying very...More

We do not go out in bad weather but the sea conditions do vary depending in wind and the direction of the wind. We are always inside the fjord watching whales. We have two boats one 15 meters long and other 20 meters. We can not guartantee people not getting sea sick because that does vary between individuals.
