Explore the beautiful coastline of Kristiansand and the historical site of Ny Hellesund, beginning with a 10-minute walk from the pier to the RIB (rigid inflatable boat) departure point.
Meet your guide and gear up with a survival/flotation suit and goggles. Listen to a safety briefing; then, hop aboard and head west across the water towards the picturesque village of Søgne. Along the way, you will see several lighthouses, small islands and a beautiful part of the Skagerrak Sea.
Ny Hellesund was a favorite harbor for tall sailing ships back in the 17th century. You'll step ashore here and walk up to the wartime bunkers at the top of the island. Take in the spectacular view as your guide tells you about the history and legends of Ny Hellesund.
Heading back towards Kristiansand, your RIB captain will seek out some waves for a thrill-ride on the open sea.
