            Swim with Killer Whales and Humpbacks in Norway

            An incredible ship-based safari with the unique opportunity to swim with, and be photographed alongside, killer whales (orcas) and humpbacks in the wild Norwegian waters. You’ll also have a chance to see the magnificent dancing Northern Lights.

            Surrounded by icy fjords and imposing glaciers, this unforgettable trip offers you an incredible opportunity to (hopefully) witness pods of colossal orcas and humpback whales. Leaving dry land behind, you'll travel on our very own private chartered boat, the M/V Kinfish, for the duration of your marine adventure. This gives you the advantage of versatility in your routing while sailing through the Norwegian waters. The M/V Kinfish is our recently refurbished and ice-strengthened vessel that has plied the seas and, due to her small size, is easily manoeuvrable. As you are in search of wildlife, their exact journey (migration) can never be exactly predicted; by using a chartered boat you will be able to change direction and stay in specific areas for as long as you wish. If you are lucky enough to get a space on this incredibly exclusive trip, you will be one of the very few people in the world that will have got this close to the orcas in the wild. You will spend your days riding the waves in search of the killer whales, and when dusk falls, you will even have the chance of spotting the famous Northern Lights.

            Your guides will be experts in the world's whales: NWS specialist leader team Joshua Barton, Rita Messing and Patrick Dykstra have all travelled the globe in search of the largest creatures on the planet.?

            Arrive Tromsø

            Upon arrival at Troms? Airport, you'll make your way to the city's port to board the M/V Kinfish, your home for the next few nights. With state-of-the-art equipment and just six passenger cabins, this small yet well-appointed ship is perfectly suited to your ensuing voyage, being able to manoeuvre quickly and easily in response to whale sightings. Take the chance to get to know your expert team, the Kinfish's crew and your fellow passengers before you set sail for Arctic waters.

            Days 2-7

            Whale Watching

            Our expert team have been running whale trips to Norway for a number of years; almost the entire time in which orcas have been found migrating to these waters. In the past, our clients have remained close to land, watching and swimming with the whales during their hunts off the coast of Troms?. However, this pioneering expedition will see you searching for Norway's whales in a way that few others (including Patrick, Joshua and Rita) have done before: out on the water for days on end, on board your own expedition ship. Away from the bright lights of the coast, you'll be on the trail of orcas and humpbacks in the open ocean, tracking the movement of the pods as they hunt for huge shoals of herring. Head out in zodiacs to get closer to the water and, weather conditions permitting, you'll be able to take to the water in small groups and swim alongside these magnificent mammals. The considerable expertise of your team will ensure an unforgettable experience. The exact itinerary will depend on the cetaceans' locations, but regardless of where you find yourself, you can look forward to informative lectures, delicious Nordic-inspired cuisine served by the on-board chef, and – if you're lucky – the cosmic light show that is the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

            After arriving back into Troms? and disembarking from the M/V Kinfish, your time with the whales will have sadly come to an end, but you will have undoubtedly made memories that will last a lifetime. It's now time to say your final farewells and begin your journey home.
