Brim means ‘breaking wave’ in Old Norse.
We provide wave breaking, silent and sustainable ocean excursions in Northern Norway on board the silent electric ship Brim Explorer.
Brim Explorer sails in complete silence and emission-free with batteries powered by clean local hydropower. By respecting nature, she allows us to get a little bit closer, and we use an underwater drone and hydrophone to capture wildlife both above and below the surface.
Brim Explorer is designed especially for sightseeing in Arctic waters. Three decks and two indoor salons offer panoramic views and comfortable seating for over 100 passengers. An onboard restaurant serves local dishes and drinks.
We’re a travel company with a passion for the ocean.
The epic, rugged and awe-inspiring Arctic coast deserves to be experienced from a silent, clean and comfortable ship.
We started our journey in 2017 with a clear vision to change the way we experience the ocean. With our wave-breaking technology, clean Nordic design and focus on sustainable travel, we want to bring you closer to the ocean.
With a great idea and dedicated partners, we set out to build a ship unlike any the world has seen. In March 2017, Agnes and Espen quit their jobs, teamed up with designer Einar Hareide, the small and daring Norwegian ship yard Maritime Partner, and a team of suppliers to build a unique platform for ocean exploration.
With support from the environmental organization Bellona, Brim Explorer has combined innovative climate technology and knowledge from the tourism industry to create a travel experience truly unique and sustainable.
Giving back 1%
Our passion for the ocean and the environment is the backbone of our operation. As well as providing sustainable travel, we aim to give 1% of our profits to ocean conservation efforts, starting 2019.
