Orca and Humpback Whale safari by RIB with marine biologist – Tromsø Friluftsenter

Date: Wednesday 13 dec 2017 - Thursday 25 Jan 2018 Show map

Whale watching safari in small groups with a family-run company that will give the authentic feeling of the North Norwegian charm. This is a trip that is highly recommended for photo enthusiasts or anyone that wants to enjoy close encounters with the whales.

NB! Due to changes to the whales' migration patterns we cannot guarantee that the tour will take place in a RIB-boat. To give you the best chances to see the whales we may change to a catamaran and the tour can last max. 7-8 hours.

We pick up in Tromsø by bus and drive 40 minutes north of Kvaløya Island (the Whale Island) - where the whales are (less time to get seasick). During the drive you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery while the marine biologist will tell you all about the whales, the adventure that awaits and what to look for while in the boat.
We will stop at a local fish factory that is 100 years old, here we have our changing room with toilet facilities. Midways into our tour we will have a coffee break, and while we enjoy the coffee we will use a Hydrophone to listen to the whales below us.
Our goal is to be more than a safari, therefore we want to invite you to be a part of a research project, send your fluke pictures to: [email protected]
When we are back to the harbour we offer you a simple taste of traditional fish soup
