Spacious, warm and comfortable boat with plenty of space both inside and outside on deck. Gabriele is one of the fastest boat of all the providers so we can quickly reach out to the whales.

Gabriele sets out on a whale watching from Tromsø in the morning, looking for humpback whales and killer whales. This guided cruise takes you out to the places where these graceful giants come in search of herring. You can experience the whale from the panoramic windows of the spacious and comfortable lounge on board, then step out into the crisp Arctic air on deck to get even closer to the whale.


09:00 Tromsø Kai 2, the quay at Nerstranda Shopping centre


6 hour round trip with a safe and environmentally friendly catamaran, No disembarkation during the trip. The duration of the trip depends on where the whale is located, and can therefore vary.

Group size, min - max: 10 - 195

We reserve the right to cancel a departure if there are less than 10 persons on the tour.

The boat is warm and cozy, but you should wear clothing to be out on deck. We recommend warm clothes intended for being out in polar regions, remember hat and mittens.

We take animal welfare seriously, and we are out in the field with great respect and caution. We follow Visit Tromsø`s guidelines for whale watching in Trømsø

Humpback whales can grow up to 16 meters long and are known for their fantastic "break" when they burst straight out of the water. Black and white killer whales travel in large groups in search of herring. If we're lucky, we'll also see porpoises, and we'll get to experience a number of wild arctic birds.

Tromsø is located north of the Arctic Circle, and although it is dark in the period 27 November to 15 January, there are still hours of magical blue twilight for parts of the day. The boat trip from Tromsø through the fantastic fjord landscape is magical.


There is no guarantee that you will see whales on this whale watching tour, but we have some of the most experienced skippers in the industry who will do everything they can to ensure that you experience the whale. If you don't get to experience humpback whales or killer whales on the trip, don't worry - we give you the opportunity to join the next available whale watching, completely free of charge.
