Thousands of guests every summer since 1992. A large number of European seabirds breed along the coast of Northern Norway. At BirdSafari a/s in Gjesvær, North Cape you can watch Puffins, Gannets, White-tailed Eagles and other birds on a 1.5 hour boat trip to the Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve. Departures every day with large comfortable boats 1. May - 31. August. Hurtigruten, Condor Vacaciones, OAD Reizen and cruise ships are regular customers. An extraordinary nature phenomenon.

It was nice experience doing a bird watching in the northern Norway. The ship was ok but good enough to take us to different parts of the nearby birds, we could see colonies of puffins, Eider, seals, Komoran, Gannet, Razorbill, Kittiwake Etc
