From November to beginning of February
Whale Winter Safari
Northern Lights are not the only whale species such as the Humpback whale, Killer whale (Orca), Harbour porpoise and sometimes even the Fin whale visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on herring. You are invited to come on board with us on our whale safari to take a close-up look at the feast. Sea eagles and beautiful fjords are added bonuses as we travel by boat from downtown Tromsø out towards the whales.
Our knowledgeable guide will provide information about the safety rules on board, a presentation and films about the whales and information about the surroundings you see during the trip.We aim to spend around 90 minutes with the whales so our guests have enough time to experience them, while also respecting the whales’ need to be left undisturbed.
The catamaran has comfortable seating inside for 146 guests as well as spacious decks outside on two levels for excellent viewing and photo opportunities. There is a kiosk on board to purchase hot expedition meals, snacks and cold drinks. The catamaran has a cruising speed of 20 knots, which reduces the transport time from the port to where we find the whales and extends the whale watching season due as we can cover a longer distance.
*Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed, but the chances are extremely high.
From November to end March
