Join us for an unforgettable experience, cruising into William Henry Bay with our small boats (RIBs). Nothing is guaranteed while small boat cruising but everything is possible! No two marine safaris are ever the same. Sea, weather conditions, light, and wildlife all combine to make each small boat cruising a unique and unrepeatable adventure. Our expert team of guides and drivers know how to get the best out of these boat excursions. Let them guide you with their knowledge and have your camera on hand. Prepare for a thrilling experience! At William Henry Bay, we will watch for eagles and other wildlife as we sail across the waters of this sheltered and beautiful bay.

Should conditions allow, we will also make a nature landing in the area. Disembarking on a small boat (RIB) on a solitary coast is the essence of expedition traveling. There are no ports, no houses, and probably no vehicles. Only raw nature, infinite landscapes, and untamed wildlife. No filters of any kind. The real pleasure is exploring the environment with the open mind of a pioneer and discovering the world as it used to be. We hope to spot bears, moose, and other wildlife along this wild stretch of coastline. You can also learn the history of William Henry Bay as a once-thriving copper mining region that later became a hotspot in the gold rush. Now, nature has taken it all back.

At Hurtigruten, we have the best team of guides and naturalists, the highest safety measures, and the strictest environmental protocols to protect the land—all while ensuring an unforgettable experience.
