Cast your line and try and catch your own fish as you soak up the fresh sea air on board authentic fishing boat MS Symra, a traditional 39-foot fishing cutter with history dating back to 1917.
Under the guidance of a professional crew, you’ll use jigging reels to catch fish like pollock, haddock, and mackerel. Between February and April, it is possible to also catch skrei, Arctic cod.
No two fishing trips are the same as we make the best of the day’s conditions. Our location will depend on the weather and where the fish are likely to be.
This trip is for everyone, whether you’re experienced at fishing or not. It’s an all-around enjoyable day at sea with an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and learn about authentic Norwegian fishing.
