Full description

Set sail on a hybrid electric catamaran cruise for the Arctic waters and observe marine animals in their natural habitat. Watch orcas and humpback whales feed in the icy fjords and admire the stunning landscapes around you.

Depart from Tromsø in the morning, and head out to where the whales are in time to enjoy the short hours of daylight. Take in the breathtaking views of frozen landscapes in comfortable, panoramic lounges, and multi-level decks. Find a selection of food and drinks for purchase on board.

Sail for about 3 to 3.5 hours to reach the whales and spend about 1 to 1.5 hours with them. The boat uses a hybrid engine to reach their feeding grounds. As you near the whales, the captain will switch to a silent electric engine that allows you to get close without disturbing them.

Amazing experience, highly recommended. The guides were really nice and helpful. Although the journey to the location was long (about 3 hours) it was made very interesting by the guide giving us a presentation about the whales and their history. We managed to see a couple of orcas which made the day even better! Definitely worth doing this tour!

What a day! We were really lucky to see many orcas. When I arrived to the boat, I was surprised that there were loads of people on board but it is really well organised and there is space for everyone feeling confortable. They have a bar on the boat where you can get hot drinks and snacks.

The overall experience was nice (nice guide) but we made a long travel just to watch during 20 minutes the whales then we headed back home. So we feel that it was expensive and long for few time to watch the whales and we were very far away from them
