Arctic Whale Tours offer you the full safari package: whale watching combined with bird and seal safari in one unforgettable adventure!
We are located in the lively fishing village Stø in Vesterålen. From here we begin our whale safaris that take you out to an important feeding area of the sperm whales, the underwater canyon of Bleik. On the way to the whale ground we visit Anda Nature Reserve, home to thousands of seabirds and a large harbour seal colony.
The highlight of our safaris is the sperm whale, but sometimes we are lucky and encounter minke whales, killer whales, pilot whales, or Atlantic white-sided dolphins. Bird species you can expect to see are white-tailed eagle, puffin, shag, common guillemot, Arctic skua, fulmar and gannet. Groups of harbour seals, both pups and adults, are often seen resting on the cliffs.
Our safari boat takes 60 passengers, which creates a cosy atmosphere on-board, where you become a part of our team. Our multilingual guides are qualified nature guides with first-hand knowledge about the marine wildlife and culture of the area.
Whale guarantee: If we, contrary to our expectations, do not see whales, passengers who are interested can join another safari, free of charge. Alternatively you can get half of your ticket refunded.
