    The tour is very well organized, the staff are welcoming and the boat is very nice. The view from the boat is indescribable, it allows you to see the city and the fjord from a different perspective. The stop at the former fish farm is also very informative. I would definitely do it again!

    Great excursion boat with three levels. On each level can be moved outside. On the ground floor and 1st floor there are closed areas with room temperatures of approx. 25 degrees and screens for additional image information and the screen transmission of the underwater drone. The boat is modern, high quality and well maintained. In the toilets there are sensors on the tap and soap. On the first level is a kiosk where hot drinks and snacks can be bought. In addition to the explanations of the very friendly crew/guest guides via microphones, which can be heard inside and outside, 2 binoculars and documentation readings about, among other things, the animal world are available. The trip for in 2 nearby fjords and once around the island of Tromso. What is particularly great is that the tour supports the operators in their pioneering work on hybrid drives and at the same time gives you a tour of a boat on which the engine and the hum are not heard.

    Comfortable boat - I’m a dreadful sailor but this boat was very smooth and with the electric power there was no engine vibrating which usually doesn’t sit well with me. The crew were very friendly and informative and the visit ashore to see the museum was interesting . The use of the underwater drone was a real bonus
