Spectacular tour of the Shantar Islands

Discover the world of wildlife

You dream to feel like real travelers, to be proud of the fact that you have managed to overcome yourself, to see what will never see others, to tell about what is impossible to keep silent.

Do you want to be envied by friends and acquaintances who, apart from the "banal" beach sand, swimming in the warm sea and evening traditional pastime can not tell others?

Do you want to observe nature in its original form, harsh and majestic, to observe the amazing animals of this nature?

Do you want to feel the power of this nature, appreciate this divine power, see your present place and human destiny in this world?

Our team offers you to visit just such a place, where you can forget about the bustle of the city, looking at gracefully floating whales, frolicking killer whales, swaggering in their satiety brown bears, where you can relax, admiring the amazing scenery of the Far East taiga against the backdrop of majestic hills and the harsh, but no less beautiful Sea of Hunting ...

What's in store for you

A tour of the Shantar archipelago is an incredible and amazing adventure to one of the most unexplored and insufficiently explored wild places on planet Earth. Because of its inaccessibility, the Shantar archipelago was able to preserve its pristine beauty, and you will discover the wonderful world of wildlife in all its pristine splendor.

Only here you can watch the Greenland whales, killer whales, swim next to them in their natural environment
habitat so close that involuntarily desire arises to touch them. And Far Eastern seals will be everywhere and everywhere to accompany you on the whole trip of the archipelago. It gives the impression that it's not you, but they're watching you.

Also, these places are teeming with many wild birds, as the Shantar archipelago is an ideal nesting place for many migratory birds and the habitat of the majestic white-flying eagle. There is a high probability to see the owner of taiga - brown bear, as its population here is one of the largest on the planet.


Our expedition to the Shantar archipelago begins in early July and ends in late September, it is during this period that Greenland whales and killer whales visit the bays and bays of the Sea of Okhotsk, where they feed, relax, play and delight tourists with incredible performances: jump out of the water, beat their huge tails on the water.

However, not everyone will be lucky enough to see such a performance, because it is wildlife, and whales will not give representations at our will. And the meeting with wild animals in the wild is always a lottery...

Please understand this and take it into consideration when choosing our tour.

Important moments

Health requirements.

To make such an expedition you must be confident in your physical form, have a good health and be emotionally balanced person. However, you should not go if you can not live without cellular communication, Internet, special food, and if you suffer from diseases of the back, legs, eyes, heart, lungs, psyche, chronic diseases with unpredictable exacerbations or attacks (epilepsy, cough, suffocation, mental seizures).

Natural factor.

Due to the fact that the climate of the Sea of Okhotsk is very severe, the weather is very changeable, the route of the tour can be amended and amended. The migration of whales and killer whales is unpredictable, so we will not talk with a 100% guarantee that you will be able to swim on the SUP board surrounded by whales and killer whales. But we want to say that no one has ever left the Sea of Okhotsk without seeing these beautiful creatures. Also, because of the storms and limited travel time, we can visit not all the locations planned on the route to ensure your own safety, that for us is- a priority.
To see the world around, to know its dangers, to look through walls and to find each other, to become closer, to feel: this is the purpose of life.
