What to expect

With the speedboats, you'll have a bigger area to cover in search of the gentle giants. A RIB is faster than the wind and makes it, therefore, more likely for us to find the big whales. Normally it is not necessary to leave the bay to look for whales of any kind, but this tour focuses on finding the bigger ones – further out. Nothing is guaranteed but on this tour, your chances to encounter some of the world's biggest animals ever increase.

The tour also includes a visit to the Puffin Island, where you can experience thousands of puffins, the "Clowns of the Ocean", during the nesting period (April 15th – August 20th).
