Late Summer at the Swedish West Coast


Orust - Gåsö, Swedish West Coast, August 2016

Below some random pictures from our recent week onboard "Eja", while sailing, filming and diving in the area between Orust and Gåsö at the west coast of Sweden, where we at the moment are preparing and planning for our voyage to Northern Norway. A film expedition in co-operation with Swedish National Television (SVT) :-)

Nature, so wonderful in all its shapes and colours above- and underneath surface...

In addition to the filming and diving, we have been testing the gear before it´s time to set sail and head north. This also includes testing our homemade "subwing á la Cri-Cri"!

Will it really make us fly underwater??

The below "before- and after pics" gives the answer... Yes!! Our new wings work and spread even bigger smiles onboard! ;-)

Only a couple of weeks more, and we will be on our way north towards Norway. More from this in the next blogpost! Stay tuned... :-)

Starting our new film expedition!

Slussen, Orust, Sweden 10/8-2016

In co-operation with Swedish National Television (SVT), we are now getting ready for a new film expedition. Our adventure starts here, at the beautiful west coast of Sweden, from where we will later sail north towards the amazing fjord system of Northern Norway.

To start with, we are now spending some time diving and filming here, in the archipelago at the Swedish west coast. Thereafter, later in September, the voyage continues north.

Our home, or "my floating castle", as I normally call her, is "Eja af Slussen", our 45ft sailing yacht, which will be our dive base and home for the next months ahead :-)

From the island of Orust, we will then set sail and head north, with a final mission of finding the majestic giants of Norway. These are the Orcas and Humpback whales, which has been gathering in enormous numbers in the region of Troms, in Northen Norway, during the last few years.

Will we find them, and what encounters will we experience?

A cold and exciting adventure is waiting for us!! But let us start here and now, on Orust, at the west coast of Sweden, during the month of August 2016. Stay tuned...

More  blogposts from this exiting adventure are coming soon!
