Where Do They Film Below Deck Adventure?

Bravo's "Below Deck" franchise has added another addition to its lineup. "Below Deck Adventure" follows a brand new boating crew, led by Captain Kerry Titheradge, as they sail around and tend to their super demanding, sometimes rambunctious guests. Judging by the trailer"Below Deck Adventure" promises to provide viewers with the same insightful and oh so entertaining glimpse into the world of yachting as its predecessors. The video shows Bravo newcomers Faye Clarke, Jessica Condy, Kyle Dickard, Michael Gilman, Nathan Morley, Oriana Schneps, Kasie Fadah, Lewis Lupton, and Captain Kerry Titheradge, per IMDb, as they work to maintain an aura of professionalism during operating hours before letting loose once they're off the clock. 

Of course, as with all Bravo shows, the line between business and pleasure gets blurred rather quickly as various cast members get acquainted in a hot tub. Heather Gay of "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" fame, who is one of two "RHOSLC" stars slated to appear on "Below Deck Adventure", also makes a spirited appearance during the trailer. 

Unlike "Below Deck Mediterranean" and "Below Deck Down Under," which references their shooting locations, "Below Deck Adventure's" shooting location isn't decipherable from the title. However, "Below Deck Adventure" shoots in a place unlike any of the other spinoffs.

Below Deck Adventure is filmed in Norway

The "Below Deck" franchise has taken Bravo's cast, crews, and producers to several different corners of the globe. The original "Below Deck," for example, has filmed in places such as Antigua, The Bahamas, and the British Virgin Islands (via E! News). And that's just naming a few! Likewise, "Below Deck Mediterranean" has led its cast to Thailand, Spain, and Malta, per Travel Off Path. Now, "Below Deck Adventure" has gone where previous "Below Deck" casts haven't: Norway — particularly, the Norwegian fjords, per IMDb.

According to Scandinavian Standard, Norwegian fjords are "narrow inlets of the ocean between cliffs," which were created once "glaciers retreat, allowing the sea to fill in the remaining space." Per the article, there are over 1,100 fjords in Norway and they're all revered for their natural beauty. Unlike past iterations of "Below Deck," the Nordic Fjords are much chillier; however, Captain Kerry Titheradge believes that this will set them apart from the other shows. "It's a totally different set of customers and guests," Titheradge said, adding that, "We went biking down Trollstigen road, this road that has dozens of hairpin turns. They went paragliding, horseback riding. We got classy and did a fashion show in the caves" (via Entertainment Weekly).

However, there are a couple of downsides such as the "4-degree Celsius water and the dangerous wind patterns."

Below Deck Adventure has a super diverse cast

Ahead of November 1 premiere, Bravo gave a run-down of the cast's background. As it turns out, some of the lively characters members hail from some of the furthest corners of the globe, making it one of the franchises' most diverse groups. For example, Nathan Morley, whose biography describes as "shy and soft spoken," is originally from the Caribbean. although he's also pent time in Fort Lauderdale and Zimbabwe, per his Instagram. Then there's Captain Titheradge, who was born in Townsville, Australia. Jessica Condy, on the other hand, was born in South Africa. Lewis Lupton and Faye Clark are both from the U.K. Rounding out the group are Kasie Faddah, Oriana Schneps, Kyle Dickard, and Michael Gilman, who were all born in the U.S.

Morley, one of the show's breakout stars, even documents his worldwide travels on Instagram and provides fun anecdotes about his time around the globe. In a November 2022 Instagram post, Morley offered a deep dive (yes, pun intended) into sharks and how they play a role in his native Bahamas' ecosystem. He also noted that he "[works] on a lot on fishing charters here on Cat Island where we have a lot of white-tip sharks," and said "Its such a thrill being able to share my love for these amazing creatures with our charter guests."
