November 1 – 7 2019, our incredible spotting Orcas and Whales in Norway trip to Skjervøy!
We’re going to watch Orcas and Humpback whales. We might even snorkel with these magnificent creatures.
Where do we stay
We will be staying on an Island called Segvlik accessible only by boat with a stunning view on the Fjord. The house includes a Sauna & Jacuzzi. So all comfort to appreciate northern lights!
If the whales change destination we will adapt and bring the boat by trailer. Because it’s still nature!
The boat is a Zodiac Hurricane CZ7 8m long and was built originally for military and rescue purposes so it was basically born to handle any sea conditions ! It has 2 x 150cv Yamaha outboard which give the possibility to move at a good 40 knots if needed.
The deck is flush and proposes you 8 single jockey seats and 2 extra seat on a comfortable bench on the stern plus of course space on the sides if you prefer to sit on the cosy inflatable booms.
WEATHER & CLOTHING
During winter, Northern Norway’s arctic coastline averages temperatures a little under 0°C (32°F), but it can get as cold as -20°C (-4°F). Don’t worry, with plenty of extra layers, you will be warm and cozy enough to enjoy the refreshing arctic air.
At the company in Skjervøy they’ll provide you with a warm floating suits of the brand of Fladen during our sea excursions.
Merino wool base layers (tops and long-johns) and socks are highly recommended. Appropriate winter clothing should be windproof, waterproof and hefty enough to withstand the elements and keep you warm. Don’t forget warm winter boots, a hat, gloves and a scarf.
We more than recommend to also have a waterproof bag for all electronic equipment to protect them from the rough sea and waves. In any way they will be responsible of damaged equipment.
