Arctic Whale Tours

We take you to the whales quickly and smoothly from Tromsø. Enjoy the beauty of the mountains, fjords and colours of the polar night while we make our way towards the feeding grounds of killer whales (Orcinus orca) and humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). We strive to provide our guests an unforgettable, safe, informative and inspirational day out at sea, while giving wildlife the respect and space they deserve and require. 

You will be taken care of by our friendly and experienced guides, who have many years of first-hand knowledge of the nature and wildlife of Northern Norway. Our guides will be looking out for other wildlife as well, including other cetacean species such as harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) and white-beaked dolphins (Lagenorhynchus albirostris), and birdlife such as all common seagull species, little auk (Alle alle), common eider (Somateria mollissima), long-tailed duck (Clangula hyemalis) and the majestic white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla).

We have tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits available throughout the whole day, and an option to have a light warm soup lunch on the way back to Tromsø. Soft drinks, wine and beer are available for purchase. 

Whale Guarantee
Our safari success rate is around 95 %, but occasionally, it happens that we fail to spot any whales (we are dealing with nature, after all). For such rare days, we have a whale guarantee: If we do not see whales, guests who are interested can join another safari free of charge (winter or summer season).
