Silent Whale Watching
We depart from Tromsø early in the morning in time to enjoy the short hours of daylight. Experience the magnificent winter landscape as we get closer to the majestic Humpback and Killer Whales.
On our way to the whales we use a hybrid engine, and as we get nearer, we switch to a silent electric engine. This allows us to get closer to the whales without disturbing them. We’ll launch an underwater drone and hydrophone that captures the images and sounds of the whales as they work together to hunt in the herring-rich fjords.
The meaning of the name BRIM is "breaking wave" in Old Norse. Our goal was to build a ship that is both sustainable and the ultimate platform for experiencing nature. The vessel is built in recycled and recyclable aluminium which make the ship light and energy-efficient.
In our comfortable salons with panoramic windows, you can enjoy the views of the beautiful winter landscape. During the tour, you can buy something to drink and eat in our restaurant.
The tour duration depends on the whale location and may, therefore vary between 6-7 hours. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee to see the whales, but we will always do our best so you also can experience them.
