Join us for a thrilling guided cruise aboard MS Rygerdronningen, one of Norway’s newest, biggest and most comfortable sightseeing boats, to experience the migrating whales in the Arctic Sea.
MS Rygerdronningen is a perfect boat for whale watching inside and outside. The boat is spacious, stable in rough seas, and fast enough to reach the whales quickly. Our boat is large, with a comfortable, warm lounge with panoramic windows, a small kiosk, lavatories, and several outside decks. In the kiosk, we sell food, snacks, and hot and cold drinks.”
This whale-watching tour is an excellent opportunity to spot a variety of species, including Humpback Whales, Orcas and sometimes Fin and Minke whales in their natural habitat. While our expert crews will do everything possible to find whales for you on this whale-watching tour, there is no guarantee since these are wild animals. However, we offer a free ticket to our next available whale safari if you don't see whales. This free ticket can only be used once.
Our catamaran departs from the harbour of Tromsø centre. The direction and duration of the tour will depend on the weather conditions and the most probable whale sightings.
Some days we need to travel up to three hours to reach the whale sighting area. The journey by boat offers scenic views as we cruise between islands and fjords with a mountain backdrop. Once we have spotted the whales, we spend as much time as possible 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 about 8 hours.
09:00 - 16:30 The roundtrip is up to 8 hours. No disembarkation during the trip. The duration of the cruise can vary depending on the whales’ location.
Boarding starts at 08:30 at the pier by Nerstranda shopping centre.
