Chief Officer

Julie

 

In love with orcas of course… Working also in the yachting industry as charter broker I have a strong hospitality service. I will be on-board helping for safety and spotting the blows of the whales. I have been also working for the same whale watching company in Norway as a guide with Rodolphe for two winter seasons.

Rodolphe

 

I am a yacht captain since 10 years, cruising around the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas for the charter guests. Passionated about orcas since my childhood I travelled several times to Vancouver Island approaching them by Kayak in the summer and since 5 years now whale watching and orca diving in Norway, working also a couple of years as a captain for a whale watching company in norway in the winter. With my experience and respect of animals I will approach the whales in the best secure and respectful way and will always try to give you the best opportunities to photograph or dive with them if the conditions allow this.

I am chief officer of all expeditions! I am a beautiful black & white (a bit of brown as well !!) 4 years old Bodegherro adopted from Spain and I follow my two friends in all their adventure trips in Norway since unfortunately they prefer arctic places… I will not do anything except waiting for you at the chalet after your whale watching trip and allow you to cuddle with me if you wish, I don’t bite !! I will leave you a paw print in your heart..

Your boat captain will expertly position the RIB boat to help maximize the light when capturing images of whales, birds or landscapes

Aurora borealis

The auroras can be visible in many shapes and colors, it can be moving both slow and majestic as well as fast and furious. And no other celestial object is better to put things into perspective, and makes you realize in a better way how small you really are in this endless universe we live in.
