Whale safari

We cruise by boat into the Disko Bay to spot whales. In the summer time humpback whales come to the Disko Bay to feed on capelin, a small herring-like fish. As the humpback whales are a protected species, they are very trusting and can often be enjoyed at close range. Please be aware that we are not visiting a zoo, and therefore we cannot guarantee that the whales will 'visit' our boat! Packed lunch included.
