Porpoise catch

“Snævringen” in the northern part of the Little Belt has one of the world’s densest populations of whales – the porpoise, which thrives in the riveting waters.

The organised hunt for porpoises happened in Gamborg Fjord south of Middelfart from 1593 to 1880. The porpoise hunters in Middelfart had a life-long royal privilege for hunting porpoises. The boats of the porpoise hunters can be seen at Middelfart Museum and a copy on the water next to the Little Belt Shipyard in Middelfart Gl. Havn (Old Harbour).

Harbour porpoise exhibition

When you book a whale safari on the ADVENTURA, the ticket includes entrance to the porpoise exhibition at Henner Friisers House in Middelfart.

For the children there is, amongst other things, an interactive porpoise game.

Dogs allowed on board by appointment.
