Scenic Whale Watching on Colin Archer boat - Tromsø Friluftsenter

Date: Wednesday 1 nov 2017 - Wednesday 10 Jan 2018 Show map

We pick you up in Tromsø by bus and take you to our beautiful boat that awaits you North on the island of Kvaløya (Whale Island). During the drive, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Our comfortable and charming vessel has a history dating back to World War II and a capacity for 22 persons that ensures you a personal experience. It has an outer deck where it is easy to move around and a small indoor saloon if you want to warm up or enjoy a hot drink.
Explore the fjords by boat and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. The most common whale species are humpback whales and orcas, but there are also chances of seeing fin whales and possibly harbour porpoises and other species. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for other wildlife such as white-tailed eagles and different seabirds, e.g. shags, guillemots, little auks, and the seals that sometimes can be seen resting on the cliffs.
If we're lucky, we may also be able to catch some fish. If so, we will prepare, cook and enjoy a small taste of freshly cough fish, straight from the sea. It doesn't get any better than this!

If there is to few people booked another boat of similar size will be used.
