Lonely Planet review
Far and away the island's biggest outfit, Whale Safari runs popular whale-watching cruises (adult/child Nkr830/500) between late May and mid-September. It also operates the Whale Centre. Tours begin with a guided visit to the Centre, followed by a two- to four-hour boat trip. If you fail to spot at least one sperm whale, your money is refunded or you can take another trip for free. There's a good chance of spotting minke, pilot, humpback and orca (killer whale). Trips depart at least once daily with up to six sailings in high summer. Your fee includes a snack, if you can face it – staff pass around the seasickness pills, just like airline boiled sweets, before takeoff. Bad weather and/or high seas only rarely prevent a Whale Safari sailing. All the same, try to build in an extra day on the island, just in case you're unlucky.
