Join the Periphylla Safari!

If you’d like to dive with the mysterious deep-sea Periphylla jellyfish, you have come to the right place!

The Periphylla jellyfish lives several hundreds or even thousands of meters deep in the open ocean, and is only seen by divers on very rare occasions.

In the middle of the winter, in the middle of the night, in the middle of one particular fjord – that’s when the Periphylla come to the surface. With 300 meters to the bottom we go in the water for a unique encounter.

Lectures are included on the Periphylla Safari, which is held each January.

  • Periphylla Safari January 10-14, 2018
  • The Periphylla Safari gives you a great opportunity to experience this awesome deep-sea creature up close - and the wreck diving is also spectacular this time of the year! If you' want a longer stay it is possible to book extra days after the Periphylla Safari.

    Safety first

    Diving with the Periphylla takes place in water 300 meters deep, in the middle of the night and in the middle of the winter - far from land. Good buoyancy control and diving skills is a must, for obvious reasons. If you think you're up for it, join us for a truly one-of-a-kind diving experience! To make the dives safe and enjoyable, we use a setup with a buoy with a weighted line with lights attached to it. All participants must do a training dive on the first night of the safari.

    Spectacular sight

    The bell of the Periphylla may reach 15-20 cm in height, and the 12 tentacles grow to almost half a meter each.The Periphylla is bioluminescent, it can produce its own light. At the same time it is allergic to sunlight and prefers the deep

    Join the Periphylla Safari! and get spectacular night diving

    Diving with the Periphylla is not like anything you have ever done: We dive in open water, in the middle of the night. Luckily, we usually see plenty of jellyfish at 15-20 meters depth, but buoyancy control takes on a whole new meaning when it’s 300 meters to the bottom...

    Unique opportunity

    Not many underwater photographers have pictures of the Periphylla. Join the safari next year and become one of them! The Periphylla jellyfish is unlike anything else above or below the surface, and organized Periphylla diving is only offered by us as a unique product. Read more here:
