"Snorkeling with orcas has been acclaimed by Lonely Planet as one of the coolest travel activities".
Lofoten Adventure offers Orca and whale safaris and Snorkeling with the orcas from Andenes in Vesterålen. We have daily departures from 01.12.2015 till 07.02.2016, including New Year’s weekend. There are no safaris during Christmas weekend from 19.12.2015 till 27.12.2015.
To be in the water with the orcas is a powerful experience and an unforgettable meeting with nature.
Lofoten Adventure has more then 20 years of experience in the field. Wearing a warm dry suit, a mask and snorkel you float comfortably on the surface.
When you put your head under water you will first feel the silence, and then suddenly start hearing the whales communicating with each other, then see herring and parts of dead herring floating around. You are no longer an observer, but part of it.
Meet at our base camp at Andrikken Hotel 09.30. We will give a lecture about the whales and a security briefing before the safari. We will provide you with under suit, dry suit and ABC equipment.
You will need: Woolen underwear, warm woolen socks, hat and gloves. We suggest that you bring extra clothes in case you get wet.
Duration: 2-3 hours.
