Every year, the people of the Faroe Islands herd pilot whales to their shallow shores and kill them for their meat. Whale Wars: Viking Shores follows the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as it sets sail to end this ancient tradition known as “The Grind.”

The MV Brigitte Bardot heads for the Faroe Islands alone trying to stop whale hunting. MY Steve Irwin is detained in Scotland for damaging properties of a fishing company at the Mediterranean Sea to free bluefin tunas. The Sea Shepherds are not welcome due to past encounters. The crew of the Brigitte Bardot speaks to the Faroese about whaling but is warned not to stop whale hunting. Meanwhile, the Sea Shepherds try to smuggle acoustic devices which would be placed underwater along the coast to dispel whales from swimming toward the Faroes, but their attempt is discovered.

The Brigitte Bardot and a covert land team continue to patrol the shores of the Faroe Islands for signs of whale hunting. At one location, the crew discovers what they thought are fresh whale bones scattering on the sea bed, which would indicate that whaling has already began. Meanwhile, the Steve Irwin cannot leave Scotland until a bond is paid, forcing Paul Watson to embark on a fundraising campaign. Eventually, the bond is paid and the ship is allowed to leave. The Sea Shepherds receive news that there is an arrest warrant for Watson, but Watson decides to head for the Faroes anyway. Upon arrival, however, Watson is not arrested.

Acting on a tip that a hunt is underway in Vestmanna, both the Sea Shepherd ships and the land team rush to the site to try and intervene, only to find the cove empty and the town deserted. It is then learned that the residents of the town have traveled to the capital city to partake in the annual festival of Ólavsøka. Paul Watson has the land team head to the festival with graphic images of slaughtered pilot whales on their van; they are eventually forced to leave the festival by local authorities. Later on the Brigitte Bardot docks in Tórshavn harbor where they are harassed by locals throughout the night, culminating in one resident attempting to cast off the ship’s mooring lines the following morning.

The crew of the Brigitte Bardot contacts police and the local who was tampering with the mooring lines leaves after receiving a warning. The Sea Shepherd vessels and the land team continue to patrol the shores for signs of whales. A helicopter and an ultralight aircraft are launched from the Steve Irwin to aid the search. However, the Sea Shepherds are forced to ground the ultralight after receiving words that such aircraft are illegal. The land team discovers a large number of boats gathering at one location. Realizing that this could be a sign that whaling is about to take place, the Sea Shepherd sends all its assets there to investigate.

The Sea Shepherds discover that the boats are simply gathering for a row boat race, not for a whale hunt. The Sea Shepherds are continuing their patrols of the Faroe Islands when they receive word that the Japanese whaling fleet which they had been opposing for years is preparing to return to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary to resume operations. The news forces the Sea Shepherds to conclude their operations in the Faroe Islands in order to redeploy to Antarctica. On the final day of operations in the Faroes, the Sea Shepherds find a large pod of pilot whales and successfully drive them away from the islands. While no major whale hunts occurred during the Sea Shepherds’ visit, it is revealed that one took place a week after the departure of Sea Shepherd with over 100 pilot whales being killed.
