Whale safari

We cruise by boat into the Disko Bay to spot whales. In the summer time humpback whales come to the Disko Bay to feed on capelin, a small herring-like fish. As the humpback whales are a protected species they are very trusting and can often be enjoyed at close range. Please be aware that we are not visiting a zoo and therefore we cannot guarantee that the whales will 'visit' our boat! Packed lunch included.

Our Guide met us at the terminal which was a very pleasant as we had just endured several hours departing the ship and waiting on Russian border security. Our guide marsh was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Her knowledge of history of the area was invaluable. Our driver was very good too , he was able to get us to all destinations on time . Our 3 day tour was extensive and at times a bit to much to take it all in. I would easily recommend the tour to others, what I would change is going for the suites on board the ship. As this gives you priority when departing the ship. Better seating areas for your meals . Oh the meals , hey were fantastic on board the ship. Along with extra room to move in your cabin, the standard rooms are small. I was very happy with all the customer service we received both on board the ship and while in st Peters-burg. The locals are very pleasant and make the effort to communicate with you. Highlight of the tour for me was Peter Hoff, simply stunnig
