Whale Research Safari in Beautiful Skjervøy & Scenic Fjord Tour by Bus

Address: Sjøgata 29, 9008 Tromsø Date: Saturday 24 oct 2020 - Sunday 31 Jan 2021 Show map

Address: Sjøgata 29, 9008 Tromsø

This tour is conducted by Wild Seas. The whales have chosen to stay north this season and we’ve decided to follow them.Travel with us to beautiful Skjervøy and help fund whale conservation projects by choosing Wild Seas.  

Embark on a journey through scenic fjords on a cozy coach bus as we make our way to Skjervøy, this year’s whale hot spot! Upon arrival, we jump onboard our vessel with heated cabin/restroom and scour the seas for orcas and humpback whales. Enjoy a soup and sandwich and warm-up with hot beverages.

Those who wish to sit back and enjoy the show are welcomed to, but guests who are eager to help with our research can assist us in collecting:

- Behavioral observations
- Photo-identification
- Vocal recordings

When the conditions are right, we deploy our hydrophone and listen to the enchanting songs of the whales. If we are lucky, we will get to see the lady aurora dancing in the sky as we make our way back to Tromsø.
