This was experience was way better than I expected. The guides often came to our group to discuss with us. One guide was speaking in a microphone that could be heard everywhere inside and outside on the boat, explaining the history of the surrounding areas and the behaviors of the whales and some animals that live around Trømso. We were lucky enough to see many white tailed eagles, and a TON of whales (around 10 humpback whales). The wales were spotted in the distance, and we were able to get a bit closer. At the end some came very very close to the boat, it was epic. My only regret is not bringing a camera or binoculars with me! Another thing I appreciated with this tour is that it uses a hybrid propulsion system, which is less impactful on the climate and the whales. Aboard the ship they had food that looked good and a good selection of beverages. Overall this was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
Vi havde en rigtig dejlig dag afsted på hvalsafari. Turen var lang (næsten 9 timer), da vi sejlede helt til Skjervøy så meget af tiden gik med transport frem og tilbage. Men vi så både pukkelhvaler og spækhuggere da vi kom frem. Vi kom dog ikke så tæt på, da vi holdte afstand og gav plads, hvilket var dejligt at se at de tog god hensyn til hvalerne og ikke jagtede dem omkring. Selvom vi ikke havde set hvaler, var det en enorm smuk tur, og alle på båden var ekstrem søde og hjælpsomme. God guide, men masser informationer om områderne og hvalerne. Alt i alt, en rigtig god oplevelse!
Incredible and unique experience! We saw several pods of orcas, as well as humpback whales all feeding and feasting on shoals of herring. We expected to see one or two individuals but instead were spoiled by Mother Nature. Additionally, the crew were absolutely fantastic, helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. The Captain ensures to respect the animals in their natural habitat by keeping a healthy distance, allowing these beautiful creatures to approach the boat instead, once they feel comfortable enough to do so. A must do in Tromsø.
Awesome experience. Very friendly and charismatic crew onboard a modern, silent catamaran. It was a long excursion but worth it when we reached our destination and saw the Orcas and humpbacks in their natural habitat, just swimming around and bobbing in and out of the water. The crew are very passionate about conservation and imparted vast knowledge about the animals and the ocean along the way. We were a small group, around 11-12 plus the crew so social distancing wasn’t a problem. Incredibly scenic tour, highly recommended.
Actually I wanted to give 5 stars, but then I thought - it is always some things one can improve. I would like to hear more information about whales and nordic nature. It could be nice entertainment and a source of information.
