Winter Whales of Norway Expedition

During the winter months, Waterproof operates a one of a kind wildlife experience in Northern Norway. This expedition cruise takes you through the majestic fjords and the ever changing winter scenery to find Orcas and Humpbacks.

Whale watching and snorkeling with orcas

Two Expert Guides will accompany you on this whale watching adventure.
During five full days we follow the schools of herring and pods of Orcas and
Humpbacks in the protected surroundings of the beautiful Norwegian fjords. We go into the water for snorkeling whenever the weather conditions and animals let us. The snorkeling activities are included in this trip, on board we provide a (Waterproof D9) snorkel dry suit and snorkel equipment.

Whale Watching and Photography in Norway

This trip is a unique opportunity for everybody interested in Orcas, Humpback whales, White-tailed eagles, Arctic winter, Northern lights and breathtaking landscapes. Even if you choose not to snorkel, the zodiac excursions are great opportunities for whale watching and photography! The best time of the year for this spectacular wildlife is from November to early February, when the balance between light and access to herring and whales are at it's best. During the long winter nights you also have a good chance of seeing the majestic Northern Lights.

Our ships are equipped with large Zodiacs and full Polar Snorkel gear (for 16 guests max) for the ultimate Whale and Photography adventure.

Expedition cruise to Northern Norway


We are always ready to alter plans accordingly to take advantage of light, weather, wildlife sightings and other one-of-a-kind opportunities which can vary unpredictably from day to day. We cannot guarantee that all activities and shore landings will take place or that they will include all the events we’ve outlined in advance. Be prepared for cold but rewarding days out at sea with spectacular sightings of a unique display of mother nature. Bring a good portion of adventurous spirit. We deal with true wildlife encounters and unpredictable weather conditions. The success of this trip is based on realistic expectations and your personal flexibility.

  • Day 1 Arrival and boarding

    Arrival at Tromso airport and transfer to the harbor. In the afternoon you will go on board and have plenty of time to get settled in your cabin and explore the ship.

  • Day 2-6 In search for Whales and Orcas

    For five full days we follow the schools of herring and pods of Orcas and Humpbacks in the protected surroundings of the beautiful Norwegian fjords. Two expert guides will accompany you on your whale watching adventures. The bridge of the ship is a great place to look for whales and enjoy the beautiful light and scenery of the Norwegian fjords. Our guides and crew are constantly on the look-out for Whales and Orcas. Whenever the conditions are right, we will take the zodiacs and go out on the water.

  • Snorkeling

    Have your cameras charged and be ready to put your snorkeling gear on and to slip into the cold water for a polar snorkel adventure. For snorkelers we provide a (Waterproof D9) snorkel dry suit and snorkel equipment.

  • Excursions

    The combination of wildlife encounters, the beautiful scenery of the Norwegian fjords and the amazing Northern Lights, make this trip an exclusive experience of nature.
    If you choose not to snorkel, you can enjoy the phenomena from the spacious deck on board your ship or join the zodiac excursions for up-close whale watching and excellent photography opportunities. We might also go ashore to visit some historical fishing villages that are situated in the fjords.

  • Enjoy the long evenings

    During the darker hours you will enjoy the warm and cozy comfort of the expedition yacht while our expert guides entertain you with presentations and educational information on wildlife and cinematography and films. Excellent food is served with a fine selection of wines and beers.
    In the winter months Northern Norway is the perfect place for aurora borealis sightings. With a bit of luck you might also witness these amazing northern lights.
