A sea safari – does that sound appealing? You can

almost smell the salt and sea air, and it sounds both brisk

and refreshing. It was Andøya that gave the world the

term ‘whale safari’ in 1989. Now you can get even closer

to the water and see the fauna and birdlife on the western

side of the island of Andøya as you have never seen

it before. You are invited to come and watch sea eagles

and puffins from aboard a safe and modern RIB boat. If

you’re lucky, you will see coastal seals, harbour porpoises

and small whales leaping in front of the boat. We cannot

promise that you will see a specific species, of course

– this is not a zoo – it is the wild, untamed west coast

of Andøya. We can guarantee one thing, however: you

will never forget this close encounter with nature and the

ocean as long as you live.

Once the sun rises above the horizon in the middle of

May, it doesn’t go down again until 25 July here in Andøy.

There’s nothing quite like sunny weather and the intense

Midnight Sun glowing just above the horizon. It can be

cloudy of course, but it never gets dark. And the scenery

is an attraction in itself. Explore Andøya on a thrilling

trip through the skerries, with their impressive birdlife

and fauna. We have three daily departures from Andenes

harbour to the western side of Andøya. We call at Otervika,

Rækvika and Høyvika before ending up at Stave.

On the return trip, we call at Bleiksøya island, one of the

most famous bird cliffs in Norway. There are 80,000 pairs

of nesting puffins there. Other species include cormorants,

auks and guillemots. And the sea eagles are waiting

for us!

En route, our experienced guide tells you about the area.

We guarantee an exciting and safe experience! Safety

on board has top priority. On safari trips, you will be

equipped with a survival suit, but you have to bring

along warm footwear, a hat and gloves yourself. The boat

is well-equipped and undergoes a thorough quality and

certification inspection every year. Our boats can accommodate

12 passengers.
