The Disko Bay area is a remarkable place in the summer months. Many species of whales migrate to the cooler waters of the Disko bay area. If you join a boat tour in this area in the months of July and August you have huge chances to see these big mammals swimming around and, if you are lucky, making their massive jumps up out of the water.
The most common whales you can meet on the whale safari tour are humpbacks and Fin Whale but also Sei Whale, Blue whale and the Bowhead Whale, known as Greenland Right Whale or Arctic Whale. This last species spends all of its life in Arctic waters, unlike other whales that migrate for feeding or reproduction. This boat trip is also a great opportunity to sail among the thousands of icebergs that float in the bay watching the wonderful greenlandic landscape. If you are lucky and if you look carefully you will also be able to see seals.
This tour is usually organised when we get information from local fishermen of where whales have been seen in the bay. Coffee will be served on board
