Renting boats and organized tours
Bridges connects the islands and the people, but one of the best ways of really experience Herøy is definitely by boat.
Having access to a boat opens the possibility for fishing, near land or further out on the sea. You can take a trip to Runde, the birds mountain, maybe even in to the grottos or you can go on a seal safari. Other opportunities is to paddle quietly along the land or fly over the waves on a rib.
One of the special experiences in Herøy is definitely a trip to Skorpa.
The little harbor have an access which is recommended for experienced boaters. But if you take your time, use slow speed and go the when the tide is high it will help a lot. And when you have arrived safe there is a cluster of old, well maintained houses. Maybe someone is there, spending the summer holiday taking care of the houses and tending to the wild goats that still lives on this island, as they have been for hundreds of years. Skorpa is one of the few places were you can meet this spesial coast goats with itś impressive, long horns. You can also visit the old animals spring shed in the Skorpesund. This shed was almost like a waiting room for refugees during second world war two. Skorpa was one of the most used sites for picking up an deliver people who traveled to and from England. The organization Rotary have fixed up this shed and put up information boards.
