See whales up close – the most comfortable way

We depart from Tromsø Harbour at 8.30 in the morning. Our high-speed, modern catamaran brings you on an exhilarating journey to the heart of the whale’s feeding ground.

The humpback and killer whales migrate to Northern Norway to feed on the Atlantic herring throughout the winter months. We’ll spend approximately 2.5 hours up close with the whales.

On the way to the whales you can relax in our spacious lounge and enjoy the scenic view from our panoramic windows. Throughout the tour our knowledgeable guides offer insightful information about the whales and local history. Our boat is spacious with a comfortable, warm lounge with a big kiosk, lavatories, and several outside decks. The total duration of the trip is about 8 hours, and we arrive back at Tromsø Harbour by approximately 16:30.

Note: If you don't see any whales, you can book a second tour for free at the Norwegian Travel sale shop in Sjøgata 16. (Subject to availability on the next tour).

Frequently asked questions

Will I see whales in the dark?

Even during the polar night, there are a few hours of twilight while we are on tour. So, yes, unless there is very heavy rain-or snowfall, you will be able to spot the whales. And in case we are unlucky and don’t see any whales, you will get a second tour for free!

Can I see killer whales?

Yes. Orcas and Humpback whales are the species we see most often on our tours.

Where should I leave my luggage / can I bring it onboard?

Please leave your luggage in your accommodation or in a secure storage locker. There are baggage lockers in the Prostneset Port Termial, only a short walk (5 minutes) away from the meeting point of our tour.

I’m in the meeting point and I don’t see the boat, how do I find it?

Our guides will wait for you at the meeting point, to ensure that you find your way. If the departure time is approaching and you still have not checked-in, we will try to contact you by phone. This is why we ask you to provide your mobile number during booking.

When is the best time to see whales?

The answer to this question depends heavily on the whales themselves. As a migratory species, they don’t arrive in Tromsø at the same time each year. Generally, the best time is from the beginning of November to end of January. The last few years, you could already spot them in the end of October!
