Tromso: Whale Watching onboard the Orca ExpressDay Cruises

Tromso: Whale Watching onboard the Orca Express

star-5
Join our small-group whale watching tour onboard the Orca Express. (No bus travel necessary!) Built in 1985 the Orca Express is a 50ft motor cruiser with a rich history. Originally serving as an ambulance boat, the Orca Express carried Doctors, Midwives and even a Vet onboard to deliver healthcare to the remote islands in the South of Norway. It is even estimated that around 60 babies were born onboard over the 18 years that the boat was in service! Now re-designed and upgraded, the Orca Express is the perfect vessel to explore the fjords in search of action. Boasting a 360 degree walk-around deck, capturing photos of the whales in their natural habitat is both easy and safe. Our small-group size of no more than 12 passengers onboard allow you to enjoy clear views of the activity in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You will also enjoy free onboard Wifi, complimentary hot drinks and snacks and a hot locally made meal as you cruise back to Tromsø after an exhilarating adventure.

In our approach to beautiful Hella, we will navigate along the Ry tidal current. This current attracts fish, and fish attract birds, so we will see and hear lots of nature around us while docking. We will then walk five minutes to a small boathouse where we will serve coffee/tea and muffins while enjoying beautiful views of fjords, mountains and birds. From here, you will observe the strength of the current we just navigated. Finally, we will start our short hike back to the RIB boat and our exciting navigation back to Tromso!
