Tromsø Whale Safari by RIB
Exciting, fast and enjoyable Whale Safari by RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) to feel the elements and see and learn more about some of the world’s biggest mammals in a stunning Arctic landscape.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CHANGES TO THE WHALES`MIGRATION PATTERN THE TOUR CAN LAST UP TO SEVEN (7) HOURS AND A LARGE PART OF THE TRANSPORTATION WILL TAKE PLACE BY CATAMARAN IN ORDER TO GIVE YOU THE BEST CHANCE OF SEEING THE WHALES. THE FIRST PART OF THE TOUR WILL BE A SCENIC AND FUN RIDE ON THE RIB BOAT, THEN THE GUESTS WILL BE TRANSFERRED AND THE WHALE WATCHING WILL HAPPEN FROM THE CATAMARAN.
From October to February, whale species such as the Humpback whale, Killer whale (Orca), Harbour porpoise and sometimes even the Fin whale visit the coast outside Troms to feed on herring. You are invited to experience this wonderful adventure with us in our RIB. This type of boat enables you to get very close to the whales. The outdoor and visual impressions are spectacular.
Sea eagles, fishing/aquaculture and beautiful fjords are added bonuses as we travel out to the whales.
You meet at the Radisson Blu Hotel, where we dress warmly and provide information about safety, the tour and the whales. Depending on weather conditions and the skipper’s assessment, this tour can be split in two with part by RIB and part by catamaran, with the exchange taking place at sea.
You are invited to come on board our RiB boats, to take a close-up look at the spectacular whale adventure. Dress warmly, bring your camera and enjoy.
