Sea Eagle Safari - a majestic experience

«The flying fisherman» - are you ready for an extraordinary experience?
 

The sea eagle is the largest bird of prey in Northern Europe, and the fourth largest eagle in the world. The species is one of more birds of prey in the hawk family. The sea eagle can be between 87 and 100 cm long. The wingspan can be up to 265 cm on the female sea eagle, a bit shorter on the male. The sea eagle can be up to 50 years old, but it is rare.

 

Our experience starts at the floating dock at Melbu. A speedboat will carry us to the mouth of Raftsundet where we under normal conditions will meet the sea eagle. The boat trip in itself, is an experience.

After approximately 30 minutes, we will arrive at the habitat of this bird. The sea eagle primarily eats fish (ap. 60 %) which it catches by «diving» to the sea surface and placing its claw into their prey. The sea eagle is a fantastic swimmer, and can swim the fish to land, if it is too big to carry in the air. These preys can be as big as the sea eagles own weight.

We will allure the sea eagle with our own “sea eagle snack”, and the experience of the sea eagle flying towards our boat to “catch” it’s well earned meal, is beyond your imagination. You have to experience it yourself to understand.
