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

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

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. 

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 and coffee in the local operator's office to warm you up.

What people are saying about Skjervoy

This trip was incredible! We are lucky enough to have a been on a few different whale watching excursions and this was one of the best! The boat was perfect for the experience, the crew were extremely nice and attentive and most importantly we felt like they respected the whales, who ended up swimming near our boat. We were amazingly lucky and saw orcas, humpbacks and eagles. It was perfect!

Magnificent, the captain and his assistants took the time to explain to us what we were going to do, made us feel at ease. The crew are warm, we really had a good time. Seeing the whales as well as the orcas was amazing.
