1. Bleik: Whale Watching Trip by Speedboat with Tea and Muffins
Summer whale watching in magic Bleik (Andøy, Vesterålen), a 10-minute drive from Andenes. Vesterålen is Norway's hidden spot for fantastic wildlife, both on sea and land. Join our summer whale and wildlife RIB-boat excursion to explore the surface of the deep-water canyon of Bleik and its surroundings. The canyon is home to abundant marine wildlife, including the magnificent sperm whales. You will also have a chance to encounter other marine mammals, such as pilot whales, orcas, minke, and occasionally humpback whales. All these animals frequent the area in search of food (different fish species), which also attracts extraordinary birds and other wildlife. In searching for whales, we will most likely encounter different birds (puffins, eagles, gannets, etc.) while we keep our eyes open for Harbor seals. Join our 3,5 hours RIB boat excursion with a maximum of 12 guests to explore the wonders of Bleik Canyon. During the tour, a guide will be onboard to give you information about all the wildlife we encounter and take photos (as memories) to take them home with you after the trip. Trip duration: 3.5 hours (including getting ready (wearing warm flotation suits) onshore and Complementary tea and coffee while changing after the trip). Departures: 10:00 and 21:00 from Bleik Marina (https://goo.gl/maps/j5SDCVsjxyJmzN4B6). Look for the Green Gold of Norway sign (The legendary Green Dragon), where your skipper and guide will meet you.
