– orcas and humpback whales
For the last 7 years humpbacks and orcas have come into the fjords of Tromsø to eat herring. But from last year they changed their destination to Skjervøy, north-east of Tromsø. From November we will go out and start to search for the whales. These marine mammals are wild and free so we cannot guarantee to see them, but if we are as lucky as the last years hopefully they will be back in our fjords the upcoming winter.
We offer you whale watching from Skjervøy. This tour is a full day program with bus transport and RIB-boat to spot the whales. We will guide and teach you about the whales and make sure you have a good time.
Our guides are experienced and certified skippers who take care, respect the whales and are following the codes of conduct for whale watching. We offer our tours in open RIB boats where you sit outside close to the elements of nature and wild life.
Meet up 06:15, bus leaves at 06:30 sharp and will take you through beautiful landscape for 3,5 hours. You can relax and get ready for the whale watching. In Skjervøy you´ll meet our skippers who will give you information and all the equipment you need to be safe and warm. We spend about 1,5 hour on the sea watching whales before the bus will take you home to Tromsø.
