1st of November we started the orca safari season from Sørkjosen/Reisafjord in the Northern part of Troms. And here they are!
Since 1995 Lofoten Opplevelser have cooperated with marine biologist Tiu Similä. Tiu started a long term study on orcas in Northern Norway in 1986, which resulted in a Ph.D in orcas behavioral ecology in 1997, in addition to two other Ph.Ds, four majors and three bachelor studies. She is closely related to orca studies and cooperated with scientists all over the world.
Tiu was part of developing Norways first whale tourism in Andenes and also worked with the development of orca tourism in Tysfjord. She has joined us here in Sørkjosen/Reisafjord and has lectures about orcas in connection with the daily tours we arrange.
