Whale Watching Daytrip from Andenes

Duration: 2,5 to 5 hours normally

Our Norwegian partner Whalesafari Andenes is the largest arctic whale watching operator and has over 30 years of
experience in the field. Their trips are a great way to see the whales if you have limited time.
Andenes is a good starting point for whale watching tours because it is very close to the edge of the continental shelf where whales are often feeding. This makes the travel time to the whale grounds short, allowing you more time to spend among the whales.

The trip from Andenes to the whale-area takes about one hour with MS Reine or MS Maan Dolphin. The entire tour with photography and whale watching experiences lasts approximately 2-5 hours, depending on when the whales are found. 

Included in your whale safari tickets is an exclusive educational guided tour of the Whale Museum. The museum covers a number of topics on whale biology, the ecosystem they live in and specific information about the local conditions that enable whale watching from Andenes. The museum also has a real skeleton of a sperm whale!
