Are you ready for an experience of a lifetime? Join us on this Whale Safari & Fjord Cruise where we will search the beautiful Norwegian Fjords for one of the largest mammals in the world. In our modern and safe Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) we take small personal groups (max 12 pax) on an exciting and thrilling ride on the Norwegian Fjords to find and watch the Whales. This way we can get close and personal with the whales!
From Late October to mid-February many pods of whales visit the Fjords outside Nordreisa, Skjervøy and Lyngen to feed on great shoals of herring. These conditions offer the best opportunity to get a close-up view of these majestic sea-dwelling mammals. The most common species of whale we can see is the Humpback whale and Killer whale (Orca). In addition to the large whales, the smaller porpoise is also known to make an appearance.
This tour comes highly recommended and is an absolutely “must do” while visiting the Lyngenfjord Region and Tromsø area.
We depart from Oksfjordhamn Harbour in Nordreisa County, because it is a central location to Skjervøy and Reisa fjord where the Whales usually are. On request from larger groups we can depart from Sørkjosen or Skjervøy, and also arrange transport from Troms region.
Meeting point: Oksfjordhamn Harbour, Nordreisa County (see description below) at 09:30. The boat tour lasts approximately 3-4 hours depending on the conditions. Please note that there is no guarantee to see whales because of their nature and dependency on weather conditions.
