Riggen restaurant is located on the first floor at the whale centre which is situated close by Andenes lighthouse. Here you can enjoy a panoramic view of Andenes harbor and the great Atlantic ocean while enjoying good food and drinks. In the summer time you can enjoy the midnight sun crossing over the sky and in the winter time you might get a good look at the Northern Lights or a stormy ocean. Before noon and some hours into the afternoon, the restaurant functions as a café as well. Riggen dancebar is located upstairs and can offer you a nice evening in the same beautiful surroundings.

Riggen restaurant can offer you a variety of fish- and meat dishes from our a la carte menu. We also have a dinner buffet every day where we serve traditional norwegian fish- and meat dishes. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday we also offer some Thai dishes in the buffet. If you are a pizza fan, we can provide you with our well known Riggen pizza, happily as take away if you want. Call and order in advance and we will have the pizza ready for you when you arrive.

We also have to mention our cake buffet on Saturdays where we serve a large variety of cakes at a reasonable price.

A whale safari is a unique experience and, sometimes, a moment to celebrate the important things in life. We congratulate George and Charlotte who got engaged on board of our boat M/S Maan Dolphin! ❤️

I just sent an enquiry! I hope I haven't missed the hiring process?! Thank you!

Awe-inspiring! 💙
that's how it feels when our boat is surrounded by #finwhales, and after that we also see #spermwhales alone and in groups blowing all around! 🌏
Our next safari is on Monday, and we expect good weather...don't miss it if you are in the area!

👌 stimmt, sollte man nicht verpassen…

One of the #spermwhales we observed in 2019 is matched to pictures from Madeira! 🤩

#photoid #whales #whaleresearchCACHALOTE FOTOGRAFADO NA MADEIRA FOI REAVISTADO NA NORUEGA
PT// Colaboração entre empresas de observação de cetáceos tem resultados surpreendentes!! A primeira recaptura fotográfica de um cachalote entre a Madeira e a Noruega foi feito com fotografias submetidas pela H2O Madeira (através do catálogo de cachalotes do Museu da Baleia da Madeira) e Whalesafari Andenes, na Noruega, à Lisa Steiner, que mantém um catálogo não oficial de cachalotes do Atlântico Norte!!
O cachalote macho identificado pela primeira vez em 2015 na Madeira foi "recapturado" (avistado e foto-identificado) em 2019 em Andenes, Noruega. É o primeiro registo comum de um cachalote nestas duas áreas, contribuindo para compreender melhor o movimento dos cachalotes machos no Atlântico Norte.

SPERM WHALE PHOTOGRAPHED IN MADEIRA WAS RESIGHTED IN NORWAY
EN// Whale watching company collaboration produces amazing results!! The first Madeira to Norway sperm whale match has been made from photos submitted by H2O Madeira (through the Madeira Whale Museum sperm whale catalogue) and Whalesafari Andenes, in Norway, to Lisa Steiner, who keeps an unofficial North Atlantic Sperm Whale catalogue !!
The male sperm whale that was first identified in 2015 in Madeira was "recaptured" (resighted and photo-identified) in 2019 in Andenes, Norway. It is the first match of a sperm whale between these two areas, contributing to further understand the movement of male sperm whales in the North Atlantic.
