Departing Tromsø in the morning, we head out to where the whales are in time to enjoy the short hours of daylight. On the way you can take in the breathtaking views of frozen landscapes in comfortable, panoramic lounges and multi-level decks. You’ll find a selection of food and drinks for purchase on board.
We use a hybrid engine to reach the whale’s feeding grounds, and as we near the whales, we switch to a silent electric engine that allows us to get close without disturbing them. We’ll launch a hydrophone that captures the sounds of the whales as they work together to hunt in the herring-rich fjords.
Please note that the duration of this trip depends on the whales’ migration pattern* and can therefore range from 6-8 hours. There’s no guarantee, but we’ll always do our best to see the whales!
*Exact season and duration of trip depends on the whale migration patterns. In cases where this cruise does not operate, you can either join the Tromsø Fjord and Wildlife Cruise with a refund of the difference in price OR cancel your booking with a full refund.
