We saw 15 whales and thousands of birds The skipper traveled long and far away to find the whales, and we did! Saw lots of whales, and with a midnight sun trip we got some great photos 🙂 We had a combo trip and also went to the bird mountain at Bleik, and saw lots and lots of puffins as well as at least 10 eagles. Great experience, great staff!

I participated in the summer snorkeling with Puffins as well as the whale watching tour with “Sea Safari Andenes” in June, 2018. All in all, both were great experiences and I can wholeheartedly recommend both of the trips to any other traveler. As there are many on the day guests I would recommend booking in advance if you want to make sure that you’ll get on the boat
