As the market leader with the longest experience, the greatest expertise and of course the whale guarantee, we believe it is safe to choose us as your whale safari operator. In addition, Andenes the best starting point for conducting whale watching since no other place along the Norwegian coast is so close to the edge of the continental shelf. This makes the travel time to the whale grounds shortest possible and we can thus spend more time among the whales.

The whale safari planned for tomorrow, 3rd November, is unfortunately CANCELLED due to the high waves and strong wind at sea. The guided tour of the whale exhibition will however take place at 9.30 for everyone who's interested in learning more about whales!

According to the latest weather forecast, we should be able to run a whale safari tomorrow, 27th October. The final decision will, however, be made in the morning. The plan is to check-in at 9.45, run the tour of the whale exhibition at 10.15, and depart at 11.30 on the boat.

Due to the persistent bad weather, it will not be possible to run a whale safari tomorrow, 24th October. Our next planned safari is on 26th October, weather permitting.
The whale museum is however open for guided tours every weekday from 9 to 15.30.

Due to the strong wind, the whale safari tomorrow, 23rd October, is CANCELLED. The whale museum will be open for the guided tour at 9:45, for everyone who's interested.

Judging from the current weather forecast, there is still some uncertainty about the whale safari tomorrow, 12th October. We need to wait until the morning to make the final decision. Check-in at 9.15, guided tour of the whale exhibition 9:45, boat departure planned at 11:00
