Northern Norway Troms og Finnmark TROMSØ

Polar whalesafari to Skjervøy from Tromsø

  •  /  km From You
Overview

This tour is conducted by Polar Adventures. Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Tromsø, where this tour begins, welcome on board of our boat Capella to Skjervøy Island.

The mineral-rich water off the Skjervøy coast supports a huge population of herring and plankton, which in turn attract humpback and killer whales, making it one of the finest places in Norway to see them. Find a spot on deck to scan for the whales, as a guide describes the unique ecosystem beneath the waves, and the fish and whale species that are found near Skjervøy. Watch for sea birds, as well, especially the distinctive sea eagle, whose wingspan can reach 8 feet (2.4 meters). If you’d rather keep warm and out of the wind, head below decks to the lounge, which is also fitted with wildlife viewing windows.


Meeting time and place: 7:50 am (07:50) from Scandic Ishtavshotel
Departure time and place: 8.00 am (08:00) from Scandic Ishavshotel
Included: guide, light soup, warm drinks, fruit/biscuits, insulated body suit
Duration: 6-7 hours
Number of participants: 6-30
