First Ever Rig Spotting Cruise

Rig Spotting Cruise

Ever wanted to take a vacation to tour an oil rig? well now you can. Welcome aboard the 1st ever "rig-spotting" cruise. A four day trip ending off the coast of Norway.

Passenger Nils Olav Nergaard said that "The experience to go into the oil platforms and see them for real, that was very amazing."

Up to 120 tourists pay $700 to 3,500 to get this close to the rigs but aren't allowed to board them for security reasons. Many want to learn about Norway's oil production which brought wealth to a once poor country within a generation.
