Whale Safari Experience

Sail through the magical fjords in search of wild Orcas & Humpback whales

The fjords in the Arctic are alive. We are always looking forward to greet the majestic whales who flock to Tromsø to seek food in the fjords during the winter time.

The fjords in the Arctic are alive and Humpback & Orca Whales venture far into the fjords for food during the winter time. 

We are always looking forward to greet the majestic whales who seek food in the fjords during the winter time. Humpback whales and Orcas come far into the fjords each year to hunt for herring. This is a very unique phenomenon to witness while sailing in a luxurious and safe atmosphere onboard a catamaran.

The arctic fjords are breathtaking, but with the presence of the whales, words can truly not describe how magical the experience is, and we have made it our passion to create an epic day out at sea for those wanting to witness wild whales swimming in the arctic.

Let us bring you to the whales alongside the Arctic fjords. We believe this is an experience that you can not miss while in the area during winter time.

Our skippers and guides have great knowledge and a lot of experience to keep you safe and comfortable while watching whales in the wild. We have a tremendous amount of respect for these animals and have made a promise to make minimal impact on the animals while still being able to witness them in their wild habitat.  

Just like you, we love to travel, explore and wish to seek out the best experiences in each destination we venture to. Our team and community consists of a diverse collection of international adventurers and industry professionals. Let us bring you to the whales alongside the Arctic fjords. We believe this is an experience that you can not miss while in the area during winter time.

"Adventurous, comfortable & safe"

The perfect combination for a fantastic day at sea while watching whales, tasting fresh fish and cruising through the fjords.

The Golden Eagle, our luxurious yacht

The Golden Eagle, our luxurious yacht is located in central Tromsø, and your professional skipper will be waiting to greet you at the dock. Our tour groups are small (up to 12 passengers) in order to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

The environment is also our priority

In order to run an eco-friendly organization, we choose to use sailing boats for the majority of our tours. We also measure the amount of fuel we use and offset our carbon footprint with a carbon neutralizer company.

We know how important the photos are

We will send you a batch of professional photos that you can add to your travel collection or share with your friends online. Need a tripod? No problem, we got one for you at no extra cost. Our guides are also trained to be familiar with different types of cameras.

Wildlife is the main theme

Wildlife is the main theme during these sailing excursions and we have been fortunate enough to see at least one of the whale spices every time we are out. Apart from Humpback whales and Orca Whales (Killer Whales) we often see eagles, seals, reindeers and other animals as we explore the fjords.

We provide all of the gear you need

Including warm suits, extra gloves, hats, and boots, however we do recommend to bring proper winter clothing for your maximum comfort. The catamaran is equipped for safe winter sailing with an effective heating system and of course, our skippers have all of the licenses and knowledge needed to make you feel comfortable while out at sea.

A personalized experience

While many other operators have big boats with a lot of people, we care for your personal experience while sailing with us. Our guides would love to answer any questions you may have while sailing.  Our crew  feeling as if they are out on the water new with friends, while in a professional, safe and comfortable setting.

What about food?

On our tours we take your comfort very seriously and we know how nice it is to have a bite to eat along with warm drinks. Our team will prepare a cozy picnic that can be enjoyed under the sky on our reindeer skins together with fresh coffee and premium teas.

Traveling in a large group?

If you are traveling in a bigger group we can offer several boats where you will all get to enjoy the fjords while sailing out in the Arctic. Please feel free to contact us if you are a larger  group as we have great experience in hosting big events, both on land and at sea.
