Comfortable whale safari by catamaran to see and learn more about some of the world`s bigges mammals in a stunning Arctic winter landscape.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CHANGES TO THE WHALES`MIGRATION PATTERN THIS SEASON, IN ORDER TO MAXIMISE THE CHANCES OF FINDING AND SEEING THE WHALES, THE TRIP CAN TAKE UP TO SEVEN (7) HOURS.
From October to February, whale species such as Humpback whale, Killer whale (Orca), Harbour porpoise and sometimes even the Fin whale visit the coast outside Troms to feed on herring, You are invited to come on board with us to take a close-up look at the feast.
Sea eagles and beautiful fjords are added bonuses as we travel by boat from downtown Tromsø out towards the whales.
Our knowledgable guide will provide information about the safety rules on board, a presentation and films about the whales and information about the surroundings you see during the trip. We aim to spend around 90 minutes with the whales so you have enough time to experience them, while also respecting the whales`need to be left undisturbed.
The catamaran "Aurora Explorer", has comfortable seating inside for 146 guests as well as spacious decks outside on two levels for excellent viewing and photo opportunities. There is a kiosk on board to purchase hot expedition meals, snacks and hot drinks. The catamaran has a cruising speed of 20 knots, which reduces the transport time from the port to where we find the whales and extends the whale watching season as we can cover a longer distance.
*Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed.
