Silent Whale Watching Cruise

Take a whale safari along Tromsø's coastline in a quiet hybrid boat with a 360-degree panoramic view! The boat is designed to give you ideal conditions to experience killer- and humpback whales up close, without disturbing the fragile nature and whales. A unique and magical experience!

8 hours
Suitable for all
28.OCT - 31.JAN

The silent hybrid electric catamaran is able to get close to the humpback whales and orcas, without disturbing them. 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 boat 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 can not guarantee sightings as orcas and humpback whales, as they are wild animals and do as they please.

Join in for an unforgettable meeting with humpback whales and orcas!
