GG2 Big Whale Safari & Puffins


With our speedboats we can offer our passengers more area to cover in search for the gentle giants. A RIB is faster than the wind and makes it therefore more likely for us to find the big whales. Normally we do not have to leave our bay to look for whales of any kind, but on this tour we focus on finding the bigger ones – further out. Nothing is guaranteed but on this tour, your chances to encounter some of the world's biggest animals ever increase – BIG TIME!

On this tour we also include a visit to the Puffin Island, where you can experience thousands of puffins, the "Clowns of the Ocean", during the nesting period (April 15th – August 20th approximately).


In times of uncertainty we want you to feel confident booking online with Gentle Giants and offer you this flexibility:
  Free cancellation up until 24 hours before departure
  Choose to pay online or pay on arrival

Welcome aboard!
