Full description
Set off on an 8-hour whale watching adventure from Tromsø in a small group of no more than 12 people. Travel on a comfortable 50-foot (15.2-meter) cabin cruiser and search for humpback whales and orcas in their natural habitat. Learn about them and other local marine life with an experienced guide, and warm up with an included stew and hot drinks. 

Meet your guide at the pickup point outside Scandic Ishavshotel and take a short walk to Tromsø Harbour, where your experienced skipper will greet you on-board. Then, start your adventure with a 2.5-hour cruise to the popular feeding grounds of both humpback whales and orcas.

Once in the area, begin your search for these incredible animals and spend plenty of time watching and taking photos of the whales in the wild. Stay warm in the spacious cabin enjoying hot drinks, snacks, and complimentary WI-fi, or experience the Nordic sea air by going out on the 360-degree walk-around deck.

As you cruise back to Tromsø, savor a warm stew prepared by a popular local restaurant and sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey back to the city. Photos from your adventure will also be sent to you after the trip.

Important information
Know before you go

• The minimum age to take part in this tour is 7 years old
• Please wrap up warm! Don't forget your hat, mittens, and thick socks
• Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free food options are available upon request
• Please meet at the pickup point 10 minutes before your scheduled departure
