On a boat safari in the Limfjord
In the canal of Thyborøn, where shoals of herring and other fish are a good food source for them, the chances of seeing dolphins with your own eyes are higher than ever.
Join us on a boat safari and experience the unique nature by the mouth of the Limfjord. Our experienced guide sails into Thyborøn Canal, where the North Sea meets the Limfjord. The canal is the accessway into the fjord, which many fish seek - and the dolphins follow. Many of the dolphins have already been identified. Mischief, Chewbacca, and Tall Fin are some of the adult animals in this flock with a calf, which in May of 2021 was named Leia.
The dolphins are just some of the animals living in this part of the Limfjord. A large colony of seals and a rich bird life is also part of daily life on the western sand banks. Come along and experience the wildlife.
The dolphins' behaviour
Through the last months we have gotten to know the dolphins' behaviour better. And in this time we have learned, that you can not set your clock by a dolphin. When they will show up in the canal varies from day to day. Some days we are lucky, that they are nearby from morning until evening. Other days we only see them sporadically. Others not at all.
The probability to see dolphins in Thyborøn Canal is most often best during late afternoon and at night. That is why we have decided to offer the tours, when we do. If you want a wonderful boat trip in the morning or early afternoon, we recommend a seal safari. With as large of a colony of seals as we have in the area, the likelihood of seeing seals is the same in the morning as it is in the evening.
We do not give a dolphin guarantee on this tour. The animals are wild animals, who decide themselves when and where they want to be here. We do however guarantee a lovely sail filled with lots of stories about the animals and the area in general.
The animals' welfare determine the tour. Everyone's safety - both the animals and our own - is the number one priority.
