What You Can Expect

Whale and Sea Bird Safari by Boat from Tromso to Whale Island

Polar Whale Safari

Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Tromsø, where this tour begins, then board a sightseeing boat for the cruise to Whale Island. The mineral-rich water off the Tromsø coast supports a huge population of herring and plankton, which in turn attract humpback and killer whales, making it one of the finest places in Norway to see them.

Find a spot on deck to scan for the whales, as a guide describes the unique ecosystem beneath the waves, and the fish and whale species that are found near Tromsø. Watch for sea birds, as well, especially the distinctive sea eagle, whose wingspan can reach 8 feet (2.4 meters). If you’d rather keep warm and out of the wind, head below decks to the saloon or lounge, which is also fitted with wildlife viewing windows. At the end of your Tromsø whale tour, disembark at the port, where this tour concludes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

We booked this tour as it appeared to be very friendly and took small groups. The people were lovely and very helpful and knowledgeable.
While we didn't see any Whales this time, they were much farther North, we did see the most stunning scenery in the low but beautiful sun. A Sea Eagle put in an appearance and was amazing as it soared above us.
The food on board was delicious, a very tasty and welcome salmon and vegetable soup with plenty od bread and as many helpings as you wanted. Also there was plenty of hot and cold drinks with snacks available all day.
A lovely way to spend a day on the sea in mid November.
