The fjords in the Arctic are alive and we want to guide you to a day of exploring at sea.
We sail in the fjords 364 days per year and we love it (by tradition we take christmas eve free). There is so much life in the fjords in the wintertime and seabirds, eagles, seals, and massive fish are gathered to feed and stay alive in the rough climate.
The Pukka Team have created a memorable experience for you and your friends where we explore the fjords and have a go at one of our favorite fishing spots.
Cruising the arctic fjords are breathtaking and in the winter a lot of marine life gather far into the fjords to make the experience even better. We have made it our passion to create an epic day out at sea for those wanting to witness memorable views, try fishing and spot wildlife.
Go sailing, learn about marine life, catch your own fish and enjoy the meal of your trip onboard our comfortable catamaran. Simply a fantastic Arctic day at sea!
Our skippers and guides have great knowledge and a lot of experience to keep you safe and comfortable while cruising.
Just like you, we love to travel, explore and wish to seek out the best experiences in each destination we venture to. Our team and community consists of a diverse collection of international adventurers and industry professionals. We believe sailing in the Arctic during winter time is an experience that you can not miss while in the area.
