Whale safaris are a great way to spend time at sea, and on this 3 hour trip we’ll let the whales, you, and your cameras decide where we go as there is no destination other than the whales. And the whales. And the whales.
On this minicruise we go out to Assaqutaq, beautifully situated on the south side foot of the Nasaasaaq Peak, a mere 20 minutes from Sisimiut by boat. On the way we look for humpback whales in the Amerloq fiord mouth.
Maniitsoq is the whale capital of Greenland’s West Coast and especially the humpback whale is a frequent visitor to these shores, just as it is in nearby Kangaamiut. Actually, we would suggest combining the two destinations for a full day sea adventure with minicruising, whale watching, and bird colony visits. And if that’s not enough head over to the whale watching platform in Maniitsoq for extended whale info and a chance to see both minke, fin, and humpback whales. Further north the short and fiery Sisimiut Summer offers midnight sun, and watching whales bask in the cool waters just off the coast is a reminder of how many great experiences this planet keeps treating us to. <!–:da–>testing testing testing testing<!–:–>
