Full description

On this comfortable cruise from Tromsø, head to Whale Island and the open sea. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the fish and whale species that thrive in waters that are filled with herring and plankton. The local partner's fast boat ensures that you'll get plenty of time on the water.

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. Keep warm and refreshed with snacks and drinks.

Wielorybów nie było więc zaproponowano nam rejs po fiordach w niższej cenie zorganizowany przez tą samą załogę. To był strzał w dziesiątkę: prawdziwi pasjonaci, pyszna zupa rybna, piękne widoki. Na koniec okazało się że w pobliżu są orki więc organizator przedłużył rejs i zabrał nas w to miejsce bez dodatkowych kosztów!

Beautiful experience. The boat used, starting from Tromso, allows you to arrive in the area in less than 3 hours by sailing through spectacular Arctic seascapes. In the area we saw both whales and killer whales (more). Although not a dinghy, the boat used is small and therefore can be very close to whales.

Loved seeing the whales and most of crew great but think it would be better to have a bit of a general briefing about where to stand or sit outside on the boat rather than have one of the captains come storming out shouting that if people are standing he can’t see where the whales are. Clearly he had a point but if told beforehand it wouldn’t have happened. Fish soup lovely and boat comfortable
