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 use a medium sized boat with good outside and indoor place for 12 persons. Which is our total amount of people on the whale safari. Inside our boat “Constance” you can sit and relax in comfortable seating in room temperature, enjoying hot beverages while we search for the Whales. When we find the Whales, you suit up in thermo-dressing and go outside and have a close-up look at the Whales. Or you simply can stay inside the warm and enjoy the spectacular sight of Whales true the windows. Because we are using a medium sized boat, we can get close and personal with the “gentle giants” while respecting this magnificent animal. And of course, we have toilet facilities inside the boat, if that is needed
