All for the whales


With experience from the 2017 season we found, that 4 hours is perfect to get to the whales. The huge areas of calving ice from the up speeding glacier attracts the humpback whales to the Ilulissat area. They are also found in big numbers along the coast of the Disco Island.

The humpback whale is one of the animals in the world that moves furthest. They come to the Disko Bay in the summer to eat large amounts of krill and small fish. The whale typically comes from Haiti and Puerto Rico, where they breed in winter. Humpback whales can grow up to 15 meters long and can weigh up to 30 tons.

The humpback whale is the whale we usually see in the Disco Bay, and it is easily recognizable on the beautiful tail. To experience these giants of the sea at close range is almost a spiritual experience that overwhelms many.
