The Boats and the Orca (Killer Whales)
We board the boat from the small harbour surrounded by high mountains covered in glistening ice and snow; as we travel out the stillness and light on the ice mountain evokes a very magical atmosphere. During the six day tour we will take five trips in to the Fjords (3 hour duration). Here orca can be found feeding on herring in large numbers and we usually find them within 20 minutes of leaving the harbour. You will be given a protective thermal suit to keep warm in the icy wind and cold (and be served hot chocolate and cakes onboard). The boat offers a great vantage point from which to take photographs, especially when the orca are hunting. There is a lot of lively surface activity and interactions when they are hunting which everyone enthusiastically tries to capture on camera. This, together with the stunning scenery in the background, provides an opportunity to capture some truly amazing photos.
