Tour Details

This is a whale safari combined with a RIB tour. You will join us with the regular Fjord Cruise & Whale Safari on the catamaran out from Tromsø and soon before we reach the area where the whales normally are, it´s time to dress warm and jump in to the RIB boat for a real arctic close meeting with these beautiful big mammals.

Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed, as a consequence of weather conditions and whales’ natural behavior. The arctic weather forces are an unpredictable force that can change quickly, and wild animals’ behaviors are affected by weather, food recourses, temperature and undiscovered causes.  Due to these changes the tour can be amended at short notice. This can make the route, duration and destinations different from day to day.

As an extra treat for you, from late October to mid-February some of the world’s biggest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on herrings. The most common whale species we see are the humpback whale, killer whale (orca), harbor porpoise and sometimes even the fin whale. You are invited to come on board to take a close-up look at the feast, once we reach the whale feeding site, we stay for 1 – 1,5 hours.

The catamaran has comfortable seating inside for 145 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 arctic weather forces are an unpredictable force that can change quickly, and wild animal behaviors is affected by weather, food recourses, temperature and undiscovered causes. Due to these changes the tour can be amended at short notice. This can make the route, duration and destinations different from day to day. However, if the whales do not come as early as we expect or leave earlier than expected, you can still enjoy the fjord cruise. 

Also, the winter weather in the Arctic changes quickly. Due to these changes the tour can be amended at short notice, even during the trip. This can make the trip shorter or longer as well as using different areas from day to day.
