If you are looking for a challenging marine life encounter trip, Waterproof Cruises and Expeditions may have exactly what you are looking for. It is a snorkeling liveaboard trip to the Norwegian fjords in search of Orcas. Each winter, Orcas enter the fjords in search of herring, and humpback whales will follow the Orcas.
While other destinations also have cruises snorkeling with Orcas, doing it in Norway is a bit different. Generally, Orcas and humpbacks follow seals for their meals. As a snorkeler may have the same silhouette as a seal, you need to keep your distance. In Norway, they are there for the herring balls. So as long as you are not hidden within one of the herring balls, the Orcas and Humpbacks know you are not dinner.
Waterproof Cruises and Expeditions uses two expedition yachts carrying either 15 or 22 guests on each week-long trip. They provide dry suits for the trips from their partner Waterproof dry suit. Their 2020 Norwegian trips start at €3185, or about US$3700.
