  • From Tromsø: All-Inclusive Whale and Sea Bird Boat Cruise

    1. From Tromsø: All-Inclusive Whale and Sea Bird Boat Cruise

    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.

    Great experience! Saw so many whales and orcas + several eagles. After more than two hours watching them we got a really tasty fish soup to warm us up afterwards.

  • Skjervoy: RIB Boat Whale Watching Tour

    2. Skjervoy: RIB Boat Whale Watching Tour

    Every year at the end of October, huge shoals of herrings arrive around Skjervoy and the Kvanangen Fjord 3.5 hours North East of Tromso. Hundreds of Orcas and many Humpback whales follow these shoals of herring and stay around Skjervoy until the end of January. For your whale watching excursion, you will be picked from the meeting point in Skjervoy, and provided with a warm floatation suit. You will then board a small RIB boat to head out to see. You will see many whales, and even hear and smell them. Enjoy their company and take as many photos as you like. It will be cold, so make sure you bring warm and waterproof clothes for the excursion. We will give you flotation suits that you will wear on top of your own clothes. An experienced instructor will be there to answer any questions you might have about the whales or the area. When the excursion is over, you will have sandwiches, tea ...

What people are saying about Skjervoy

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.

It is a great experience to be so close to the event, in this case okas and other large whales. The team was in a great mood and I think they had fun with such international guests.
