Northern Sea Adventure offer, in cooperation with Strømsholmen Sea Sports Centre, 3 and 6 days "live onboard" snorkeling with orcas trips .
The main activity is snorkeling /freediving with orcas and humpbacks.
You can expect to be into the water 2-4 times a day, we are out on the orca field all the daylight time.
We don't use tanks with the animals, they are afraid of the bubbles and will then disappear.
However, there are opportunities to do scuba diving for well certified dry-suit divers in the evening nearby the boat (in the harbor).

The animals are friendly, but we never touch them or feed them.
