during the winter season as the fjords around Tromsø are visited by numerous whales feeding on herring and other fish. Scientists estimated the number of humpback whales in the Tromsø area to be more than one thousand. Orcas are a sure sight when the herring has arrived and are also gathering in enormous numbers, hunting together for a tasty and easy meal.
In a sail yacht you can get incredibly close to these fantastic animals using sails instead of engine, and they are practically only one arm length away. Whales are curious creatures and will often come and say hello as they see the yacht as a potential new “buddy”.
We take great pride in not interfering with the whales in their daily life and habitat. The whales comfort is our main priority so we don’t disturb them with engine noise or fuel spill.
