Full description
Board a safari boat in Tromsø for a comfortable 6 to 7-hour cruise to Whale Island and the open sea. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the different fish and whale species that thrive in waters that are filled with herring and plankton. The coast of Tromsø in northern Norway is widely considered among the best areas in the region for spotting whales. You’ll be on the lookout for inquisitive humpback and killer whales swimming and feeding, and for birds such as sea eagles, gulls, guillimots, eider ducks and cormorants. Frame all the action through the lens of your camera. With outdoor decking and indoor seating on board the heated boat, you can enjoy an up-close experience with Norway’s native wildlife.

Fantastic experience! Completely indescribable to see the whales in their proper element. The guides and captain on board were so sweet and accommodating. Happy people with warm hearts. They were good at answering questions and telling stories. We got lovely food and refreshments. A once in a life time experience. Best day of my life.

Very good experience. The staff and the guides were very helpful and knoledgeble . They explained us a lot ot stuff regarding whales. Moreover they know how to cope with seasickness so in case you are worried about it, don't be! Comprehensive with the tour are a lot of biscuits, fruits, hot drinks and a very nice fish soup. About the whale watching we spent almost 2h (sorry didn't take the time) looking for some animals and we managed to see some killer whales and several birds. Trip is around 5h round trip (not considering the watching) varying on where the fishes are supposed to be. Very recommended :)
