Silent Whale Watching Cruise
- Fjord Cruises and 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.
We depart Tromsø at 08:00 in the 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 uniqueperspective on the surroundings.
On the way you can take in the frozenlandscapes as it slowly wakes up. You can relax in comfortable, panoramiclounges and multi-level decks. The friendly crew will share their (personal) stories about interesting sights along the way and give you in debtinformation about the Orca and Humpback Whale.We use a hybrid engine to reach the whales’ feeding grounds.
As we near the whales, we switch to our silent, electric engine, which allows us to get close without disturbing them. If conditions allow well 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 on board.
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.
