Sula Liveaboard, Arctic


Join the M/S Sula for an exciting 3 or 6-night Orca liveaboard expedition. Travelling to the Troms region located in the far north of Norway, possibly one of the largest gatherings of Killer Whales in the world takes place. Diving is not the focus of these trips, more snorkelling and free-diving with these incredible creatures. The MS Sula follows the herring to track the Orca's, sometimes as many as 50-60 during the day. In the evening the boat will moor in a nearby harbour, where it is possible for divers with dry-suit experience to dive.

Topside the M/S Sula liveaboard offers comfortable facilities for up to 12 guests. There are 2 quad cabins, 5 twin cabins and 1 triple cabin available, which are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. All cabins have bunk-beds and shared bathrooms. Social areas include a cosy living-room and dining area and large observation deck perfect for whale watching.

Spaces are extremely limited and fill up fast, so call us or book online today to reserve your space on this amazing Orca expedition trip.

Once in a lifetime experience!

Pierre the Orca whispers presentation was amazing and taught us/prepared us for being in the water with Orcas. I still can't believe we swam with the Orcas 3 days out of the trip with over 20 encounters. We were able to see the northern lights 3 times as well! Chef John was amazing, best food I've ever had on a liveaboard. Tony and Torbjön also taught us a lot about professional photography.

Absolutely Incredible Experience!

Spending time in the water with orcas is absolutely incredible - I'm still speechless. It was a real highlight seeing the orcas up close and there were so many of them. The crew and orca guide were very knowledgeable and the evening lectures were fascinating. The Northern Lights were amazing from on the Sula and the food was exceptional. The chef catered for all dietary requirements without compromising on quality. When can I go again?!

Everyone was super friendly and the snorkeling with the orcas and humpbacks was amazing. The good bye saying was really hard because you get like a family in this short time
