Come and behold the gentle giants of the Norwegian ocean on this whale watching tour of Kaldfjorden, onboard a silent vessel of eco-friendly proportions. This tour is perfect for any lover of nature, since the wildlife goes completely undisturbed as you venture its waters.

Setting out from Tromsø, you will be greeted by your ship the Opal - a traditional, two-masted schooner with a spacious deck and a roomy cabin. The ship is one of the most environmentally-friendly whale watching vessels in the world, having received international acclaim and numerous innovation awards for its unique, silent propulsion system.

The fjord which you will be exploring is Kaldfjorden, wherein lie the feeding grounds of Orcas, also known as Killer Whales, and the enormous and majestic Humpback Whale. Looking up, you may also spot the White-tailed Sea Eagles gliding above, that also feed in the fjord.

The silent propulsion of the boat not only ensures that the wildlife goes undisturbed, it furthermore gives you the opportunity of listening in on the natural wonder of the whale song. This is achieved using an onboard hydrophone, which your expert tour guides will use to try and listen in on the creatures singing.

The song of the Humpback Whale is considered the most complex form of verbatim-based communication in the entire animal kingdom. Humans still do not know its exact purpose, which only serves to add astonishing enigma to its already undeniable beauty.

The crew of the Opal are specially trained in responsible conduct with the whales, providing for an unforgettable and an up-close experience. When you have had your fill of sightseeing and wildlife watching up on deck, you have the option of enjoying lunch and hot beverages inside the cosy cabin in front of a roaring fire.

Don’t hesitate in booking your whale watching adventure now, for an unforgettable cruise of authentic Norwegian nature and wildlife appreciation. Check availability by choosing a date.
