The whales have chosen to relocate north of Tromsø and we’ve decided to follow them! Travel with us to beautiful Skjervøy and help fund whale conservation projects by choosing Wild Seas.
Embark on a journey through scenic fjords on a cozy coach bus as we make our way to Skjervøy, this year’s whale hot spot! Upon arrival, we jump onboard our vessel with heated cabin/restroom and scour the seas for orcas and humpback whales. Enjoy a sandwich and warm-up with hot beverages.
Those who wish to sit back and enjoy the show are welcomed to, but guests who are eager to help with our research can assist us in collecting:
– Behavioral observations
– Underwater footage
– Vocal recordings
When the conditions are right, we deploy our hydrophone and listen to the enchanting songs of the whales. If we are lucky, we will get to see the lady aurora dancing in the sky as we make our way back to Tromsø.
Please ask your hotel to provide you with a breakfast box if you are unable to have breakfast in the restaurant.

Stephanie and Fred Erik made this orca safari so great. They find hidden fjords and calm places where you can enjoy the orcas wild behavour. The quality on both the boat and the hotel they got us, where very satisfying!
The best experience of my life to date!!! We saw ORCA’S!!!! The most wonderful, accomodating, thoughtful people, I could not have asked for a better experience! The accomodation was perfect, the restaurants were superb and the whales – oh the whales were breath taking!
Une sortie passionnante proposée par des passionnés ! Avant le départ Stephanie nous propose une petite présentation sur la baleines…
Stephanie and Fred are operating a family business and I believe it is a completly different experience then a regular touristic boat. Stephanie, a biologue, gave us a very informative presentation about whales. At the end we are happy to see bunch of orcas and a humpback.
