Experience the graceful magic of the giants of the deep on this 3hr whale watching excursion from Ilulissat.

During Summer, Disko Bay is a mecca for whale watching. Humpback whales, minke whales and fin whales frequent its nutrient-rich waters to feast on large groups of krill and small fish. While they are found throughout the Disko Bay region, Ilulissat is a perfect place to seek them out - especially with the backdrop of the Ilulissat Icefjord and its enormous icebergs.

We will set sail from Ilulissat harbour and head to where whales have recently been sighted. We are in constant communication with the local fishermen and hunters, so have an excellent chance of seeing multiple whales during the excursion. We may even be lucky and see a Humpback jumping!

During the tour, we will help you identify the different types of whales we see, talk a little about their characteristics, and explain why this particular region is such an important place for them. 

While the tour takes place in a closed boat, we encourage you to dress very warmly so you can spend as much time as possible out on the decks. That is where you will have the best views. However, if you do get cold, come inside where we will have hot tea/coffee waiting for you.

    Our whale safari was so amazing! We were in a very small boat so got to go very close to the whales, they were stunning!
