Frequently asked questions

Can I bring suitcases on board?

Yes.

When are we coming back after the trip?

Return time is approximately at 18:30 the following day.

Is outerwear included?

Flotation suit and insulated rubber boots are included. You will get the boots in your size at the meeting point, and the flotation suit will be handed out once onboard the ship.

Can we see the whales if it is dark?

It is harder to see the whales when it’s dark, but during the morning hours, we will have what is called “civil twilight” which makes it possible to see the whales.

Is there going to be a small boat to reach whales closer?

With our Quest ship, we are able to get close and the ship also gives you a great viewing point which is a lot higher than any other boat. This makes it easier to spot the whales from afar.

If the weather allows it, we will launch the RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) to get even closer to the whales while still maintaining a healthy distance and respect for them.
