This exciting trip is organized by Northern Yachting, which has extensive experience with whale watching. Each trip is tailored so that the chance of seeing whales is as big as possible. At the same time, safety and comfort are taken care of in a satisfactory manner. All trips to Northern Yachting always start with a safety brief. Furthermore, guests receive information about the trip they are going on, where we are going and what they can expect and should look for.
Watch killer whales and humpback whales hunt in their natural habitat: The two types of whales that dominate north of Tromsø are killer whales and humpback whales, both of which hunt for herring. The herring stock in the north is at its largest between October and January. Therefore, autumn and winter are usually the best seasons to visit Northern Norway if you want to see whales.
The killer whale is a well-known herd animal that often stays together for several generations. The species is considered the largest in the dolphin family, and often has an impressive and cunning hunting technique.
The humpback whale is also a spectacle, and can live both alone and in flocks. When it eats, it fills the entire gap with fish. Yes, it can actually devour an entire school of fish in one mouthful! The females are the largest, and can measure up to 19 meters and weigh 40 tons.
Safety and comfort: The spacious boat used by Northern Yachting gives you a lot of room to move around, both outside and inside. After watching the animals in the water surface in the fresh sea breeze, you can retreat into the warm lounge.
All guests have the opportunity to borrow warm overalls on the coldest days. It is important that you feel comfortable and taken care of.
Animal welfare is also central, and strict industry standards are followed. It is important for us to ensure that our presence does not affect the animals' natural behaviour or safety.
Many experiences on board: When you join Northern Yachting on a whale safari, you can look forward to a holistic experience. Among other things, you will have the opportunity to fish and enjoy the rich bird life at sea. You get close to the northern Norwegian nature, and it is therefore recommended to have the camera ready.
