Sea eagle safari by RIB

watch the eagles

The archipalgo of Sommarøy hoasts a large colony of sea eagles year round. 

On this guided tour we take you out in our RIB or boat depending on group size and search the islands and cliffs for this magestic bird. 

Throwing a fish at sea will attract their razor sharp vision and most often they will swope in close by to benefit of a free tossed meal.

With a wingspan ranging up over two meters, viewing this bird up close is a majestic and unforgettable sight.
