Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari

Arctic Explorer

From October and to the end of January you can joins us on an organized boat tour to watch orcas and the humpback whales
This tour is conducted by Arctic Explorer.

From october and to the end of january, we organise a Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari from Tromsø by boat. The tour begins at 09:00 from Tromsø centrum harbour; the direction we cruise will depend on the weather conditions and the most probable whale and wildlife sightings. Some days we need to travel up to three hours to reach the whale sighting area. The route is beautiful – we cruise between islands and pass through vast fjords with excellent mountain views. Once we have spotted the whales, we spend at least one hour in the sighting area. We drift along with the whales during this time, and we gently follow their path with awareness of our presence in their natural environment. The duration of the tour is between 5 - 7 hours. Our boat is spacious with a comfortable, warm lounge with panoramic windows, a small kiosk, lavatories and several outside decks. We provide you with a winter suit to keep you warm on the colder winter days.

Disclaimer: Please note! We cannot guarantee whale sightings – the sightings might be affected by weather conditions or sudden whale migration.
