Whale Safari Cruise and Arctic RIB Experience - Arctic Expedition

  • Strandveien 106, Tromsø
  •  /  km From You

This is a whale safari combined with a RIB tour, the best out of two worlds. You will join us with the regular whale cruise on the catamaran out from Tromsø, and soon before we reach the area where the whales normaly are, it´s time to dress warm and jump in to the RIB boat for a real arctic close meeting with these beautiful big Mammals.

It´s time for you to join us for our Whale Safari Cruise, with Aurora Explorer. And guess what, you can combine it with a RIB tour where we expect the whales to be. Remember to dress warm, this is a real arctic winter experience. We will go out from Tromsø, and towards where we expect the whales to show up. When we are almost there, you will have to «suit up», and move* over to our RIB boat, going out on the cold Arctic fjord to get even closer to the whales feeding.
The cruise goes through fantastic Arctic winter landscape, and whales might not be the only wildlife we can encounter. The guide will tell you more about the history, nature and the locals traditions in the area.
