    Dispite the inclement weather the trip was comfortable and stable. The catarmaran was clean, quiet and modern. The commentary was interesting, diverse and informative. It covered local history, geography and wildlife; with supporting videos on the monitors. The drone footage was excellent with clear video of the fjord bottom's flora and fauna. Total sea trip was about 60km and included a visit to a fish factory to taste some fishy delicacies, visiting the site of the Tirpitz sinking and experiencing sea ice sheet. Most Excellent Experience.

    Comfortable boat - I’m a dreadful sailor but this boat was very smooth and with the electric power there was no engine vibrating which usually doesn’t sit well with me. The crew were very friendly and informative and the visit ashore to see the museum was interesting . The use of the underwater drone was a real bonus

    The cruse was very nice even though it was snowing at the beginning and at the end. You can be outside (2 floors) or inside to observe the fjords, if you want to have good seats inside I suggest you arrive sooner than the meeting’s time on your voucher. The cruse starts by going all the way up the fjord until ice is blocking the way, then we get to see the underwater floor with a drone. After that we go in the opposite direction to make a stop to a traditional fishing fridge, learn how they used to fish and have a little tasting of local fish and beverages. Then we head back to Tromsø. There are drinks, food and everything you need on the boat at a reasonable price. The staff is great, very friendly and has great knowledge of the area and the arctic circle and its wildlife in general. Great cruising experience to do while in Tromsø !
