Whale Watching by RiB
We have released our 2017/18 season whale safari departures and you are welcome to book your whale adventure.
Take part in one of the most spectacular whale adventures. From October to February some of the worlds biggest mammals visit the fjord landscape around the little town Tromsø in Northern Norway to feed on herring.
The RiB safaris is a joint cooparetion with Arctic Explorer shipping company that will secure safe operation. Same company running our catamaran operation: Whale Safari with Catamaran
This is a tour highly recommended for film teams, photographers and all of you who want a close up adventure with the whales. From October to February, some of the world’s biggest mammals visit the fjord landscape around the little town Tromsø in Northern Norway to feed on herring. The most common whale species we see are the Humpback whale, Killer whale (Orca) and Harbour Porpoise. Often White tailed Sea Eagle join in to the feast.
The season 2016/17 has been very exiting with more Orcas then previous years. This is great because they are very active in their feeding with a lot of action going on the whole time. Although we are north of the polar circle the light is plentiful also in the winter time. Already in the beginning of January, the light is getting brighter and on the 21st January, the sun is back, shining up the Arctic landscape.
The main whale watching area is west of the island Kvaløya also west of the town Tromsø. It’s usually very easy to scout the area and find the whales.
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. Please meet at the Radisson Blu Hotel for a fun, breath-taking and exiting ride!
