Watch for humpback and killer whales on a boat safari from Tromsø to Whale Island, where you find a rugged landscape and a thriving population of sea birds. Learn about Norway’s native marine life from a local guide, and enjoy the cruise on deck or in the comfort of a heated lounge.
  • Whale-watching tour from Tromsø
  • Learn about Norway's marine animals
  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Watch from an open deck or heated cabin
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 eight 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.

Spectacular wildlife and stunning views
, Jan 2020
Honest from the start that the humpback had gone because the herring had scattered. But we still had an amazing time as we saw orca. When other boats were returning the skipper then took us to another spot where we saw a bigger pod of orca - Mesmerising. All the crew were very welcoming and generous of their time and stories. Thoroughly recommend this Polar Adventures tour although there won't be any whales now. However the fjord wildlife tour we did with them today was just as special. Seeing the scenery from a boat is spectacular . Don't come all the way to Tromso and not do a boat trip :)

Fun and stunning experience

We started early in the morning, found the meeting point easily. The staff was already awaiting us. We got on board, got ourselves comfortable. Next thing was a kind greeting and the safety instructions (exits, life vests). The ship was fully booked, but it was still enough space to wander around and get yourself a drink or a snack. After approximately 2h of driving we got to an open place of the fjord, just as the sun rose (not fully though, due to polar night). Our captain stopped the boat and the staff informed us to get dressed. They have warm overalls for you as well. We went to the top and the front of the boat and 5min later we saw the first orca! The staff and the guests worked together to spot the whales. Shortly after the first sighting of the orca we saw three humpback whales. Our captain approached them carefully. We took a lot of pictures and videos and just watched them with pure exicement. The place was so remote. We were outside for approximately 2,5h until it got so cold that we went inside. Shortly after that the kind staff served us a delicious soup! I dont like fish, so i took the vegetarian option. The soup was perfect for warming up. You can also take the fishsoup, which was tasty was well, according to the rest of my family. We then head back to tromso. I totally recommand this tour! The staff was so kind and caring! The sea gets rough sometimes, so most of the guests were sea sick, but they were prepared (had a lot of bags and ginger pills or ginger tea to fight the sickness) They told us lot of their experiences with sealife and even showed us some really professional pictures they made during their tours (including eagles and some other interesting animals). Also the boat was clean and well equipped (generous toilets, enough room, comfortable seats, thermal suits, a lot of food and drinks). If I came to Tromso once again to experience sealife, i would book this tour again. Thank you, for this experience! :)

Absolutely brilliant excursion, saw Orca's and Humpback whales. They catamaran was really enjoyable and the free hot drinks very welcome. I had the waffles as they were recommended and were gorgeous.

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.

Helt fantastiskt. Komma så nära och se de imponerande djuren. Var mycket bättre än jag förväntat. Missa inte denna utflykt.

Fin tur men ikke mange hvaler og Spækhugger at se, god service ombord på båden, vi fik en skøn suppe til at varme os på.

Dear guest, all days are different some days we see a lot some days less, that's nature. We, of course, try our best and use all the experience and tools we can to spot as many animals as possible for you but its important to remember that it's not a zoo we are visiting. Thank you so much for kind words and welcome back. Kind regards Marlene and the crew

Trevlig dagsutflykt. Personal på båten var mycket duktiga, och kunde berätta och förklara så det blev intressant. Måna om att alla hade det bra.
