Whales are curious creatures and often come close to the boat to check out what's happening. Our guides know exactly what to look for and will make sure you get the best view and photo opportunities.

We start the tour at 8:00 in the morning to be the first boat in the area and spend more time with the whales than other boats. Don't worry about the cold - we provide insulated suits and hot drinks to keep you warm.

Amazing cruise even though the weather was not great the tour operator did everything to help make the trip fun. Saw various birds and even managed to catch a fish. Food was also great and plentiful, even catered for food allergies.

Stunningly beautiful. As a person whose been to many remote places the sights here were truly stunning. Also the man who led the tour is absolutely hilarious.

It was a really really good experience, very well organized and father and son were a really good crew. We had done to the wale safari too which was also a good trip, Thomas is a really nice and friendly guy. We can only say we will do it again if we stay in tromsø.

Amazing trip. The guides were fun, friendly and helpful. They shared stories about them and interesting information about the area. The captain was great at getting close to the whales, we got there before everyone else each time.
