Whale and Orca safari by RIB boat

This trip is highly recommended for photo enthusiasts and others wanting to get close to the whales and the elements.

We pick you up in Tromsø by bus and drive to our base camp, which is located on the north of Kvaløya (Whale Island). During the drive, you can sit back and relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery while your guide and marine biologist tells you all about the whales, the adventure that awaits , what to look for and how to spot it while on the boat. At our base camp you will be provided with an extra layer of clothing and survival suits. We will then continue for another five minutes by minibus to where our boats will be waiting for us.

We conduct responsible and safe whale watching, aiming never to disturb the whales while they are feeding.The most common whale species are humpback whales and orcas, but you may also spot fin whales and possibly harbour porpoises and other species. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for other wildlife such as white-tailed eagles, different seabirds (e.g. shags, guillemots and little auks) and the seals that sometimes can be seen resting on the cliffs.
