Whale watching
– a world famous feast

Whale watching in Tromsø Norway has been world known because of the amount of killer whales and humpback whales that have visited our fjords for the last years. The whales comes here to feed on the herring who over-winter close to the coast.  So far we have meet orcas, minkey whale, white-beaked dophins and harbour porpoises.  We always do our best to give all our guests a great maritime experience out on sea.

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.
