Norway 2018

Pisces Divers in collaboration with Jacques de Vos / Arctic Freediving offers divers the opportunity to freedive or snorkel with wild orcas and humpback whales in the beautiful fjords of northern Norway.

Each winter millions of tonnes of herring enter the shallower fjords and bays along the north Norwegian coast, providing an abundant food source for everything from seabirds and humpback whales, to the ultimate apex predator – orcas.

Small groups have the unique opportunity to see these animals in their natural environment while living and diving from luxury yachts. The region is also located in the heart of the Northern Lights oval and at the end of a days diving (weather permitting), guests can enjoy the magical Aurora Borealis with one of the most beautiful scenic backdrops in the world.
