29 May SWIM WITH ORCAS IN NORWAY
Posted at 13:22h in Unique Experiences
EVERY YEAR FROM THE END OF OCTOBER TO BEGINNING OF FEBRUARY, PROBABLY THE LARGEST GATHERING OF ORCAS IN THE WORLD TAKES PLACE IN THE STUNNING TROMS REGION, IN THE FAR NORTH CORNER OF NORWAY.
Sometimes as many as 50-60 Orcas and Humpback Whales can be observed at the same time with the trip following the Orcas closely to watch them play and feed.
When possible, there is the opportunity to enter the water and swim with these magnificent animals. To be with them in their own habitat is an experience of a lifetime and one you will not quickly forget.
We can arrange a variety of options for this thrilling and enthralling experience. Packages for the trip are available as either 3 or 6 day excursions aboard one of three boats available which are available for either individual bookings or full charter of up to 12 people.
Your entire stay will be on-board one of the fleet ran by the oldest and most prestigious operator, having become the first in the world to run excursions to swim with Orcas in 1992.
Their expert knowledge will guide your expedition for underwater adventure and give the best possible chance of getting into the dry-suit. Whilst on-board you can enjoy the luxury of a dedicated chef, a comfy lounge area and a hot tub to relax in.
The trip also includes one evening with a Hydrophone for listening to the sound of Orcas and Humpbacks (conditions permitting) and USEA lectures with certified lecturer and Orca expert Pierre Robert de Latour.
The experience includes all of the following:
All meals/food, coffee/tea/soft-drinks. Professional chef on-board
