We depart for the Fjord Cruise and Whale Safari every day 9:00 from Tromsø city centre – Kystens Hus. Once we reach the whale feeding site, we stay for 1 – 1,5 hours.
From late October to mid-February, some of the world’s largest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on herring. The most common whale species we see are the humpback whale, killer whale (orca), harbour porpoise and sometimes even the fin whale. Come on board and take a close-up look at the feast.
Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed. The arctic weather forces are unpredictable and can change quickly. Weather, food resources, temperature, and undiscovered causes can all have effects on wildlife behaviour. Due to these changes the tour can be amended at short notice. This can make the route, duration, and destinations different from day-to-day.
Whether the whales show up as early as we expect or leave earlier than expected, we will still offer the fjord cruise. The catamaran has comfortable seating inside for 146 guests as well as spacious decks outside on two levels for excellent viewing and photo opportunities. There is a kiosk on board to purchase hot expedition meals, snacks, and cold drinks.
Season: Daily from 25 October 2019 to 31 January 2020 (subject to whales).
