There's nothing more awe-inspiring than seeing a mighty humpback whale breach the glassy surface of the ocean and splash thundering back into it, and these whale-watching tours allow you to witness it up close from the deck of your boat or even closer from a dinghy. Our tour operators know just where to find the whales and how to spot them, which means that you are almost guaranteed to see this majestic feat of nature on any of these expedition cruises through the Arctic, and Antarctic waters. Of course, whales aren't the only wildlife you'll encounter on these cruises - you might also come across lazy walruses, seals, colonies of thousands of sea birds, cute penguins of all sorts, and other hardy animals that populate these waters. Let us know when you're ready to start planning your whale-watching adventure!
