We did the 2 hour rib boat tour round the bird island Runde. Close up we saw harbour seal, porpoise, lots of different kind of sea guls nesting, a few puffins and six eagles. Great and skilful guidance by our captain Erika.

Traveling fast across the water is fun. We saw gray seals, sea eagles, puffins, thousands of nesting gannets. Great historical references along the way, including the story of the wreck of the Akerendam (1725) along the way. Great guide.
