Silent Whale Watching Cruise

  • Fjord Cruises & Fjord Safari

Join in on a Silent Whale Watching cruise along Tromsø onboard the silent hybrid electric ship, providing a 360-degree panorama view both outside and inside.

Get a unique perspective on the humpback whales and orcas as they are fed in the herring-rich fjords of the Norwegian Arctic. Daily whale tours from Tromsø during the whale season. 

Tour description

Depart Tromsø at 08:00 in the crisp arctic morning, and head out to the whales’ feeding grounds in time to enjoy the few hours of polar daylight. Purpose-built for whale watching, the hybrid-electric ship gives you a unique perspective on the surroundings.

On the way, you can take in the frozen landscapes as it slowly wakes up. You can relax in comfortable, panoramic lounges and multi-level decks. The friendly crew will share their personal stories about interesting sights along the way and give you in debt information about the Orca and Humpback Whale. 

As the boat is getting closer to the whales, it switches to a silent, electric engine, which allows the boat to get close without disturbing the whales. If conditions allow the crew will launch a hydrophone that captures the sounds of the whales as they work together to hunt in the herring-rich fjords. You will find a selection of food and drinks for purchase onboard.

Please note that the duration of this trip depends on the whales’ migration pattern and can therefore range from 6-8 hours. The crew will do their best to find the whales, but we can not guarantee sightings as orcas and humpback whales are wild animals that do as they please.
