Whale Watching in Tromsø

 

Last week’s whale watching safari in the Kaldfjord of Kvaløja/Troms was unfortunately unsuccessful. We booked Northern Sailing, responsible whale watching on an oak shooner as it is known that Northern Norway may be the last resort for these beautiful beasts.  We joked that the intelligent animals most probably were actually there but probably kept hiding, diving under the ship.

The orcas and humpbacks will arrive later this month, when swarms of herrings show.

BBC had a report on whale watching in Kvaløja/Tromsø yesterday. Scientists believe killer whales are doomed to extinction due to harmful chemicals manufactured by man. That would fit with dire expectations I had expressed earlier today.
