from £219
6 hours May-Sep

In the summer months, Disko Bay attracts large pods of the incredible humpback whale to its waters, where the animals feel on the capelin, a small herring-like fish that can be found here.

Enjoy a visit to picturesque settlements of Ilimanaq before setting off on a cruise on Disko Bay.

A protected animal, humpback whales have become very trusting in these waters and, naturally curious, they often approach the whale watching ships of their own volition to take a closer look.

Thus, this is an incredible place to enjoy first-class whale watching encounters at close range as a group of these cetaceans circle your vessel, feed undisturbed by your presence, or play together in the chilly waters.

Although your guides will do their utmost to give you a quality whale watching experience, there is no guarantee of seeing whales.

Please note that this excursion is subject to pack ice and weather conditions and may require minimum numbers to operate.

Duration: 6 hours (approximately)

Price from: £219 per adult, £109 per child (2-11 years)
