The catamaran MB Havcruise is a very comfortable boat with good deck space, toilets and a warm, homely lounge. This is a very civilized way to hunt for the lights.
The owners live on board in the winter season. We stay in protected waters, where we have found a very secure place for the Northern Lights, though it depend if the nature is with us or not, and if the activity is good. Northern Lights from the seaside are a spectacular and beautiful sight. The light pollution from the town actually disappears into the black sea. Our statistics for Northern Light sightings give us around 80% score in a winter season, which must be regarded as very good. As an added bonus you get a fabulous view over the Tromsø area in the beautiful Arctic winter night. Knowledgeable hosts with years of experience will do their utmost to give you a memorable tour.
During the trip we serve a North-Norwegian traditional fish dinner out of the best ingredients. This consists of boiled cod with potatoes, bacon, onion, vegetables, flatbread and butter. As dessert we offer, chocolate / biscuits / fruit and hot drinks. We also offer vegetarian food which must be ordered in advance.
