Overview

Humpback whales, Orca's, Spermwhales and Finnwhales are frequently close to Andenes. We went there to visit the Spermwhales in a RIB. We were so exited because of the boattrip as the whales aswell. After a 30 minute boattrip the captain found the whales and we went to them. And it was so special to see these big friendly animals in real life. There was a group of 5 Spermwhales and one of them was so curious about the boat that he came to us. We really had the chance to see the Spermwhales very well and we made great pictures! Close to the harbour we visited a group of seals who where resting on a little island. Although not as impressive as the whales they where very cute (and much bigger then I thought) We were in Andenes in March and we will come back in januari when the Humpbackwhales and the Orca's are back!!!

Did the whale safari 5 years ago and thought it an amazing experience. Only thing I regretted was to not take the pill against sea sickness. This time saw the whales better, closer by and longer than last time. It was really most exciting! Only...More

While waiting for our bird watching tour to begin, a call came in that killer whales were sighted in the area (a rare phenomenon in this time of year). Within few minutes we were fitted in thermal suits/life vests and off we went! Killer whale...More
