Winter Whale Expedition

Humpback whales and Orcas have been sighted in large numbers feeding on herring. Waterproof Expeditions offers great opportunities for Whale Watching, photography and snorkeling in the crystal clear Arctic waters, which is an experience in itself!

This trip is for anyone interested in Orcas, Humpback whales, white tailed Eagles, Arctic winter, Northern lights, Moose and spectacular landscape. The best time of the year for this phenomena is November through the end of January when the balance between light and access to herring and whales is at its best. The winter days in Norway provide excellent light for photography. We will spend the daylight hours looking for whales and other wildlife and, if the opportunity occurs, snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

With the newly rebuilt live aboard yacht MV 'Malmö' and with the robust and strong ship MV Freya, we are flexible to follow the herring and the Orcas deep in the fjords and deliver great chances of success.

During the darker hours you will enjoy the warm and cozy comfort on one of the expedition yachts while our expert guides entertain you with presentations and educational information on wildlife and cinematography. Excellent food is served with a fine selection of wines and beers.

Best trip Ever !
