Freediving with wild Whales in the Arctic
while living on an exclusive Sail Yacht

Your chance to join!

A Life Changing Experience…  

Each morning starts early as we set out to find orca and humpback whales which allows the opportunity to dive with. During these hours you will already encounter several pods on the way as they set out to start feeding on herring in the fjords that line the coast. Once a suitable pod has been located, you will be given the opportunity to enter the water in small groups.

With you in the water is free dive instructor and trainer at Freedive International, Jacques De Vos. Before diving from the boat we spend a day with testing of equipment, briefings and of course some fun dives. During the dives he will guide you and secure your safety while in the water.

The whales come to North Norway during the winter months to follow and feed on the herring which move into shore. As there is no ‘fixed’ location, the herring and whales move throughout the vast network of fjords this coast is famous for. We are constantly in touch with local sources to find where the whales are active which also means we often explore new beautiful locations on a daily basis, offering guests beautiful views of the stunning Norwegian fjords.
