Address: Radisson Blu Hotel Sjøgata 7, 9008 Tromsø
Exciting, fast and enjoyable Whale Safari by RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) to feel the elements and see and learn more about some of the world’s biggest mammals in a stunning Arctic landscape.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CHANGES TO THE WHALES`MIGRATION PATTERN THIS SEASON, THE TOUR CAN LAST UP TO SEVEN (7) HOURS AND A LARGE PART OF THE TRANSPORTATION WILL TAKE PLACE BY CATAMARAN, IN ORDER TO GIVE YOU THE BEST POSSIBLE CHANCES OF SEEING THE WHALES..
From October to February, whale species such as the 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 experience this wonderful adventure with us in our RIB. This type of boat enables you to get very close to the whales. The odour and visual impressions are spectacular.
Sea eagles, fishing/aquaculture and beautiful fjords are added bonuses as we travel out to the whales.
You meet at the Radisson Blu Hotel, where we dress warmly and provide information about safety, the tour and the whales. Depending on weather conditions and the skipper's assessment, this tour can be split in two with part by RIB and part by catamaran, with the exchange taking place at sea.
* Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed.
