Whale watching RIB tour

Arctic Explorers

This tour is conducted by Arctic Explorers. The marine biologists historically have never seen so many whales as in the last years around The Arctic county of Troms. The sea sometimes is “boiling” with whales in the clean water around the boat.
Join Arctic Explorer's Whale Watching to see the most fascinating animals on our planet with one of the world’s most staggering, breathtaking coastlines as background. If you're lucky, you might even spot world-class Northern Lights on the very same visit to Tromsø.

Visit the Kingdom of Whales in the Kingdom of Norway! Our Whale Watching Tours run from Tromsø, Norway, between early November until late January. We will search for whales in some of our most beautiful fjords, eat good food, and enjoy the great outdoors, while the whales often are swimming right next to us.

We follow all whale-watching guidelines set by scientists. All our skippers have participated in a whale watching course, to learn how to guide this trip on team with the whales.

Small personal groups and all inclusive! You are welcome to join our new RIB boat, where we are looking for these enormous creatures. It will be in a small personal group, which is the way wildlife should be enjoyed.
