Elding was originally built as a rescue boat but came into the hands of the Elding family in 2000. Since then we have made many changes to the boat to make it better suited for whale watching and other adventures at sea. It's mainly used for whale watching and private fishing tours in the summer time but increasingly also for Northern Lights Cruises in the winter time.
