Join us for an unforgettable experience!

IMPORTANT: Meeting time is 1 hour and 45 minutes before the boat departure.
E.g. 9:15 for the boat going at 11:00.
Join us on a summer safari from May to September where midnight sun can be experienced from late May to late July. Or experience the whales in a wonderful winter light from October to April on one of our winter safaris. Whalesafari Andenes has over 30 years of experience in whale watching and we do our utmost to give our customers a fantastic nature experience.
We can offer experienced guides and crews, 100% whale guarantee, the shortest distance to the whales, comprehensive guided tour in our whale exhibition, exclusive souvenir shop, restaurant and camping. Onboard you are served biscuits, coffee/tea and the opportunity to borrow a warm coverall. Onboard the M/S "Reine" we also serve soup and bread on the return trip (not provided on M/S "Maan Dolphin").
Normally a boat trip lasts between 3 and 5 hours. However, your travel plan must take into consideration that trips can be longer or shorter depending on factors like the whales' distance from shore, weather conditions, vessel etc. Trips with our vessel M/S "Reine" normally last longer than with M/S "Maan Dolphin" due to slower transit speed.
Our unique 100% whale guarantee means that if the boat does not find any cetaceans you can take a new trip for free (must be booked at our reception). Alternatively, you can choose to get your money back. In cases where whale watching is part of a travel package, the whale guarantee only applies to the whale watching itself and not other parts of the travel package.
You must arrive at our center one hour and 45 minutes before the boat departure for check-in. One hour and 15 minutes before boat departure there will be a guided tour of the museum (duration of about 45 minutes).
