Full description
Travel from Tromsø through scenic fjords on a comfortable coach to Skjervøy, this year’s whale hot spot. Upon arrival, jump aboard a vessel with a heated cabin and restroom and scour the seas for orcas and humpback whales.

Keep warm with hot beverages and enjoy a sandwich. Sit back and simply admire the whales, if you wish, or get involved with the whale research onboard. Collect behavioral observations, photo-identification, underwater footage, and vocal recordings of these magnificent creatures.

When the conditions are right, deploy a hydrophone and listen to the enchanting songs of the whales. If you get lucky, spot the Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky as you make your way back to Tromsø after your whale watching and research experience.
