This video and pictures were sent to us from a couple of passengers who joined us on a whale safari in 2005. They had a very nice encounter with a sperm whale approaching the boat.

We were fortunate and met a group of #killerwhales in addition to several sightings of sperm whales! www.whalesafari.no Photo (from an earlier trip): Helge Hellesund @helhelg @ Whalesafari Andenes ...

Although sperm whales are the most common species we encounter on our whale safaris, we may be lucky and meet other types of whales as well. Killer whales (Orcas) are one example. They can be really fun and playful, as this wonderful picture shows. Photo by: @helhelg ... See MoreSee Less

Well, this is a perfect shot of a killer whale. Congrats to Helge. I have been very lucky when we encountered Fin whales, Minky whales, pilot whale pods and humpbacks. It's the most amazing Safari in the world!!!

Tosi hieno suomennos tämä spermavalaat. Ei ole kääntäjä tiennyt valaista mitään!!!!

Vi glæder os til sommer 👍😊❤️

In wintertime #spermwhales often group together off Andenes in the #vesteralen. And when the sun shines, low on the horizon, we get an amazing light! These are pictures from yesterday's #whalesafari, taken by our guide Stefan.

The star of our #whalesafari is often the #spermwhale, but last Friday, off Andenes the scene was taken by two #finwhales. Second largest on the planet, they're extremely fast swimmers and the blow can be seen from miles away!
