Full description
Board a safari boat in Tromsø for a comfortable 6 to 7-hour cruise to Whale Island and the open sea. Listen to your guide’s commentary about the different fish and whale species that thrive in waters that are filled with herring and plankton. 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.

Simply majestic, would 100% recommend. The landscape alone is breathtaking and we were able to observe several pods of orcas and a few humpback whales. The boat was maybe not the most fancy but fast and the captain was able to find the whales seemingly right away once we got to the Skervoj area. Oh, and the food was excellent .

Wow just wow. The tour was so great, we saw so many whales, sometimes we didn't know whether to look at the orcas or at the humpback whales. Since the boat is small and the captain turns off the engine, we got very close to the whales. The crew is great too !! Warm, sweet and in a good mood and they know exactly where the whales are. The freshly prepared Norwegian fish soup rounded off the whole tour perfectly, really tasty. Can only recommend the tour! We're even with us a second time and it was just as great. It is not a typical tourist tour but very familiar.

The guides are very welcoming, they share their stories and knowledge with enthusiasm. We saw lots of orcas then the captain went elsewhere to find whales. We saw 5! This detour allowed us to enjoy the excursion 1 hour more because the guides left us a lot of time to observe the whales.
