Season: 7th of October – 15th of April
SILENT WHALE WATCHING ON ELECTRIC BOAT (6 - 8 hours)
A unique perspective on the feeding frenzy of Humpbacks and Orcas that come to Tromso in the winter. We use a hybrid engine to reach the whale’s feeding grounds at Skjervøy in less than 3 hours and in time to enjoy the hours of daylight. You can enjoy fresh pastries and coffee in the comfortable salons as you take in the spectacular Arctic morning light, sailing past snow-covered landscapes, the Lyngen Alps, islands, fjords and fishing villages.
There is a good chance of spotting white-tailed eagles, Europe’s largest bird of prey, and porpoises along the way. A professional guide will give you an in-depth presentation about marine life during the trip. As we near the whales, the silent electric engine allows us to get close to these majestic animals without disturbing them. The underwater drone and hydrophone will also be able to capture the whales communicating as they cooperate to hunt the herring in the deep, narrow fjords.
Please note that whales are wild animals, and constantly on the move. We can guarantee that we will do our best in finding them, but cannot guarantee sightings. If the whales are far away, we need to use our diesel engines for the transfer. On arrival at the whale site, we cruise in silent electric mode.
