Andenes - the perfect place for whale watching in Norway.
The sea around Andenes is very productive and attracts a large variety of both baleen and toothed whales! The most common sighting in the summer is sperm whales, which stay in the waters of Andenes all year round. An encounter with the sperm whales is truly an overwhelming experience, which can also be reflected in Melville's story of Moby Dick. It is the world's largest toothed whale, which can grow up to 20.5 meters and weigh 57 tons. Have the camera ready to take unique pictures as the sperm whales prepares to dive! Our whale trips in the spring and summer months take place daily in the period of May to September. The trips are weather dependent. For trips in April and October, please contact us in advance.
