About Us

THE VALHALLA

Our Valhalla is as majestic as the great Hall in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin.

It is our Viking paradise called Seglvik. Brave warriors will fight the extreme conditions of the Arctic to meet the peaceful creatures of the Fjords under Freyja’s protection, daughter of Njord, the God of navigation!

OUR CREW

Julie

Photographer / Guide

I am Rodolphe’s wife and in love with orcas just the same… Working also in the yachting industry as charter broker I am strong hospitality service oriented. I will be on-board helping for safety and spotting the blows of the whales. I have been also working for the same whale watching company in Norway as a guide with Rodolphe for two winter seasons. I also have all certifications to take you to sea but I prefer taking photos

Rodolphe

Captain

I have been working as a yacht captain  for 10 years, cruising around the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas for charter guests. Passionated about orcas since my childhood I travelled several times to Vancouver Island approaching them by Kayak. With my experience and the respect I have for these animals, I will approach the whales in the best secure and respectful way and will always try to give you the best opportunities to photograph or dive with them if the conditions allow it.

Some mythology and legend around the name we have chosen for our boats: Valhalla and ValFreyja

Valhalla, the resplendent hall of the god Odin, for the Norse people, was the paradise of the proud warriors slain gloriously in battle.

The beautiful Valkyries, emissaries of the God Odin, chose those who conducted themselves with bravery and honor to take a seat at the table among the 12 Gods of Asgard, feasting on wild boars and mead until the next day’s battles.

The goddess Freya is said to welcome the best warriors into her hall.

Legend says that when Odr, her husband, was away for a long time, she would cry tears of gold that turned to amber as they fell into the sea!

My deck is flush and proposes you 8 single jockey seats and 2 extra seats on a confortable bench on the stern, plus of course space on the sides if you prefer to sit on my cosy inflatable booms.

VALFREYJA

New Zodiac generation, I am a SRA 750 Riverine Aluminium built and designed to be strong and reliable.
Often used as rescue boats in all countries but still military built I am at my best with my D-shape hull in harsh conditions or rough seas.
