Go on a Whale Watching Safari

Have you ever seen the majestic sea mammals up close as they play in the water? Meet the whales at their favourite feeding ground outside the coast of Tromso. Every winter the gracious humpback whales return to the coast of Tromso after a summer holiday in the caribbean. Here the whales mate, give birth and have the time of their lives in the warm sea. But there is one thing missing from their all-inclusive holiday package deal – food. And this is why they come to Tromso – they follow the herring.

How about a Whale and Arctic Wildlife Safari?

Join a Whale and Arctic Wildlife Safari for the chance to spot the magnificent humpback whales as well as orcas, harbour porpoises and more. The whales follow the fish and we follow the whales. The route we choose will differ from the day to day based on the weather conditions and probability to see whales. With our hybrid engined boats you can also go on a Silent Whale Watching tour. As we get nearer the whales we will switch to an electric engine allowing you to get closer to the rulers of the sea with minimal disturbance to marine life. During the trip an underwater drone will capture the images and sounds of the whales during the trip. Relax in the comfortable lounges and take in the winter landscapes through the panoramic windows. Join us on deck when the giant mammals break through the surface to say hello.

The hybrid-electric reduces the noise and vibration allowing us to cause minimal disturbance to the marine life.

Here you will receive a lunch package to bring with you on the tour. From Sommaroy, we start exploring the amazing scenery of the archipelago as well as our search for sea eagles by boat.
