Sail to Whale

Pukka Travels

This tour is conducted by Pukka Travels. Each year from November throughout January, humpback whales and orcas gather in the Norwegian fjords to feast on herring during the rough winter.
With start in Skjervøy, we take you out for an adventure that for many of us is a well kept childhood dream.

Cruising through the stunning fjord is an experience in itself, with its natural beauty attracting all sense. We meet in Skjervøy marina around 10:45AM (10:45) and depart at 11:00AM (11:00) for about 4 hours of sailing. Nothing beats the excitement of being fully in the present moment and soaking in every inch of impression during the search for the orcas and humpback whales.

Even though we are never guaranteed to see the whales, your professional skipper knows just how to track the swimming giants and will provide optimal chances for you to experience a successful safari. Meanwhile, you enjoy the time onboard The Hawk, a comfortable 46 feet catamaran with a heated indoor lounge and soft bean bags on deck.

We know that you need to keep your energy levels during the tour, and have prepared a snack box including hot beverages to warm you up. Your skipper welcomes questions about navigation and arctic marine wildlife. This tour operates on Wednesday-Sunday.
