It was great experience to know about Orcas and Humpback Whales. My daughter was so excited to watch them closer. We were lucky to see many humpback whales on our trip. Hanna explained about orcas and whales which was new information to us. I recommed Arctic Whale tours if you want to see orcas or whales

I saw amazing and beautiful orcas on this tour. Everything went amazing. We had a experienced guide who could answer all our questions and even more. She was absolutely delightful. Our captain on the boat drove us safely to the whales while still respecting their feeding area and not getting too close. This trip was definitely worth the money.

First of; take the sea sickness pill offered unless your are very used to being out on the open sea! We had a great day at sea with several whale spottings! The crew got a tip from some fishing vessels which led them to take us to a different location than what was planned for. Turned out to be a great decision. We lost track of how many dives we saw (when the tail end comes up), and counted at lest 5 sperm whales. As they dive and come back up it's not easy to say if it where the same 5 all the time or more. According to our guide it is not usual to see as many sperm whales in one location as we did. We also saw some minke whales, several eagels, puffins and other marine birds. The crew/guide was active and enthusiastic, giving details about the different species we saw and answering questions. On our way back we got a soup, which was okay. No more, no less. But nice with something warm to heat up after being out on deck for hours in the wind. Remember that it's usually always colder out at sea, so bring warm clothes (wool layer), beanie and gloves. Although we had relatively calm sea the rolling movement of the vessel led to several people getting sick- so take sea sickness pills if you're not sure how you gonna react to waves and rolling movement at the open sea.
