The water in Lofoten is crystal clear, but with little ripples in the surface it is still difficult to see the details. Snorkeling is the solution to this difficulty. The suit you get is made for cold temperatures. You also get mask, snorkel and fins, and our experienced guides give you a briefing of how to use the equipment. If we go by boat you will get to visit two or three places, so that you can see the diversity of the sea. If we snorkel from land you will get some more time in that one location. You can see kelp forests where small fish are playing hide and seek with crabs. On white sandy bottom you can see colorful starfish and beautiful soft corals. Mountain walls are covered in anemones in all sorts of colors. A local guide is either on the boat or in the water with you. You will get all the necessary training, so no prior knowledge is required. The guide helps with the equipment, tells you what you can see and shows you where you can see the most beautiful things.

Bli med som frivillig på ryddetur med RIB til Yttersida av Lofoten Dette er en flott mulighet til å få oppleve unike steder som man vanligvis ikke kommer til, samtidig som man bidrar til å rydde kysten ren for herreløst marint avfall. Turene er et samarbeid mellom Clean Up Lofoten og Aqua Lofoten Coast Adventure med støtte fra Miljødirektoratet, og gir deg muligheten til å være med på dette viktige arbeidet. Aktuelle områder for rydding er for eksempel Gjerdvika, Hermannsdalen, Turtnbakkvika og Horseidet, men det kan også bli aktuelt med turer til Tuv, Vorfjord og Ånstad som ligger på innersiden. Forutsetninger: Deltakerne må være forberedt på at ferdsel kan skje i ulendt terreng, og det er derfor viktig med gode sko som tåler vann, f.eks. fjellsko. Bekledning etter værforhold og at man skal rydde søppel! Benytt derfor noe du ikke er redd for. Voksne ryddere over 18 år vil bli prioritert. Ta med godt med drikke, og kanskje litt ekstra niste. Vi holder enkel grillmat. Det tas værforbehold. Oppmøte: Lofoten Activity Center på Sakrisøy Tidspunkt: Kl. 08.30 hvis ikke annet er avtalt. Retur ca. kl. 16.00. Her vil det bli delt ut praktisk informasjon om turen og om jobben man skal gjøre før man drar ut. Det vil også bli delt ut nødvendig redningsutstyr. For mer informasjon og påmelding kontakt Marit Gressetvold i Clean Up Lofoten, firstname.lastname@example.org. Clean Up Lofoten Clean Up Lofoten er et prosjekt som eies av Lofoten Avfallsselskap IKS og Lofotrådet, og som jobber for opprydning av marint avfall i Lofoten, i tillegg til forebyggingstiltak for å hindre at marint avfall oppstår her lokalt. Siden oppstarten i 2011 er ca. 180 tonn marint avfall fjernet fra strand- og kystlinje. Mer informasjon om prosjektet og våre tiltak finner du her: www.cleanuplofoten.no Clean Up Lofoten ble startet med midler fra Fylkesmannen i Nordland, og arbeidet med marint avfall er støttet med midler fra Miljødirektoratet.
