Full description

Embark on a boat tour through the waters of Tromso and Skjervoy and watch for whales and wildlife as you gaze at the beautiful landscapes of Norway. Spot different animals, in particular, the Orca, and learn the history from your guide.

Begin the tour at 8 AM and be the first boat into the whale-watching area from Tromso. Take your time admiring the majestic Orca whales in complete silence for the ultimate chance to hear their charming calls.

While on board, delight in food and snacks, and sip on a hot drink. Look out over the landscape and hear the crew's stories and information about the whales, and other wildlife such as seagulls, the white-tailed eagle, guillemots, wider ducks, and cormorants.

Discover the coast of Tromso and SKjerboy, widely considered among the best areas in the region for spotting whales. Be on the lookout for the inquisitive humpback and killer whales swimming and feeding on herring.

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.

We were lucky to get close to fin whales and meet humpback whales at the very end of the whale season on 1st February. The crew was friendly and explained about the territory and animals. Hot drinks were provided as well as cookies. On the way back we got some tomato soup

It was a breathtaking experience. Despite the end of the season we saw many orcas and humpback whales. It was warm on the boat and there were drinks and biscuits. Unfortunately, the guides do not tell anything about the whales or experiences. You drive the boat and give a short safety briefing at the beginning. Not for the faint-hearted, the rocking of the boat is not without it. It was great - again and again ;)

Superb experience! We saw dozens and dozens of orcas as well as a dozen humpback whales. The boat is very comfortable. However, we must expect movement because we are not on a lake! Also, it should be noted that if you have never been on a boat to see marine animals, do not be surprised at the lack of information provided by the crew. Nevertheless I think they are open to all questions! The meal is light but hot, bring something to snack on :)
