Fjord cruise & whale safari combined with a Rigid Inflatable
This is a fjord cruise & whale safari combined with a Rigid Inflatable Boat tour. You will join us in the regular Fjord Cruise & Whale Safari in the main boat, out from Tromsø and soon, before we reach the
area where the whales normally are, it ́s time to dress warm and move to the RIB boat for a real arctic close meeting with these beautiful big mammals.
Please note that whale sightings cannot be guaranteed. Sightings can be affected by weather conditions and/ or whale’s natural behavior, so it is impossible to be able to offer a guarantee.
The route, duration and destinations seen on the tour can differfrom day to day based on the weather. However, if the whales are not spotted, you can still enjoy the fjord cruise. The Rigid Inflatable Boats are not suitable for photography due to the possibility of the material getting wet. If you wish to bring your personal belongings such as glasses, watches, jewelry, bags and electronic equipment, you do so at your own risk.
