Max 08 people on the trip + 2 Trip leaders

 

We will be cruising the Fjords of the Tromso area looking for Orcas during daylight hours. Take note , this is the Arctic winter and sunrise at that time of the year is around 10am and Sunset at 1:30pm. When Orcas are spotted , we will be deployed via chase boats to free-dive with the pod. Orcas have a wide-range of movements and can swim 200km per day. This is NOT Seaworld, these pelagic animals have a mind of their own and sometimes they find them in 20 min or sometime 4 hours, and sometimes they are just not around. This is why Squires has charted a boat to give us the best chance of finding them. Pelagic encounters like this are high risk of not having encounters BUT a high reward , when we do. At night we will be treated to spectacular displays of the Aurora Borealis , far away from any city lights.

 

You will need a Dry-suit (water is 2c) , Mask, Snorkel , fins and at least 7mm hood. You will also need all the dry winter gear (prepare for temps. That will range from -15c to 0 ) It probably won’t ever get above zero for the duration of the trip.
