In the summer months you will see people out looking for different species of whale in the colder waters off Disko Island. Take the opportunity to go whale watching with Ilulissat Tourist Nature.

It is very likely that you will see these enormous mammals swimming around and frolicking in the waves. Sometimes they come up the surface to suck in air. As the whale breathes you will see the air shooting upwards before the whale slowly disappears beneath the waves.

The humpback and the fin are the most common species of whale you will see. However, it is not all that rare for a Greenland whale to make an appearance. You might also see some seals in the water.

These lively creatures can be found anywhere in Greenlandic waters and along the coasts.
