Sea Safari

To see a 100-ton heavy animal throw itself above the water surface just to elegantly collide back seconds after is an experience you will never forget.

Activity overview

When the boat stops, it’s time to keep your eyes and ears open. Suddenly you hear the distinct sound of a whale exhaling at the sea surface, and you do the same when you encounter the beautiful sight of a whale. It is a good idea to stick to the skipper of the boat when you are on whale watching, as he has good experience of where the whales are, and with a sharp falcon look he is usually the first on board to see the whales. To see a 100-ton heavy animal throw itself above the water surface just to elegantly collide back seconds after is an experience you will never forget. 

Whales visit Greenlandic seas in the summer and can be seen at all our destinations. The sea around Hotel SØMA Aasiaat is booming with life and in the summer, we (almost) provide whale-guarantee. The mighty giants thrive well in Disko Bay and are seen in large numbers around Aasiaat. If lucky, you can even see a whale from your room window.
