Whale Watching from Fredericia with M/S Marianne
Take the tour boat M/S Marianne out on the Little Belt and experience porpoises up close.
Whale Watching: Boat Tour from Fredericia
Looking for porpoises? With the tour boat M/S Marianne, you can go whale watching on the Little Belt, where the porpoise, one of the world’s smallest whales, lives. The Little Belt is home to one of the world’s densest populations of the small whale, so there are good chances of spotting one or more porpoises during the trip.
There are boat tours throughout the summer departing from Gammel Havn in Fredericia!
Listen to stories about the porpoises, the nature, and the area around the Little Belt along the way - in fluent Danish, English and German!
On Board the Tour Boat M/S Marianne
When you go on board the M/S Marianne, you are welcomed by the boat’s skipper, who makes sure that everyone has a good trip. M/S Marianne is an old rockfisher/angel vessel which has been converted into a tour boat. The boat has outdoor seating covered with sails for all guests and a toilet at deck height.
During the whale watching or boat tour with M/S Marianne, you are very welcome to bring a food basket, drinks or snacks, which you can enjoy along the way.
The time on the ticket is the departure time. Please show up 15 minutes before departure so that everyone gets on board!
Clothing: The tour takes place outdoors and on the water, so remember to dress according to weather conditions.
Dogs: Small dogs are allowed by agreement.
Safety on board: M/S Marianne is equipped with life jackets and life rafts.
Fishing trips: It is not currently appropriate to arrange boat fishing tours on the Little Belt due to the fish population in the belt. This is therefore not possible with M/S Marianne.
Special Tours with M/S Marianne
M/S Marianne also sails a selection of special tours. Come, for example, on a sea safari where seafood tapas or open sandwiches are served on board, or enjoy an evening sail where you sail in the glow of the sunset.

Boat Tours with Experiences for Children
Does your child dream of becoming a skipper? On a boat tour with M/S Marianne, participating children are allowed to enter the wheelhouse and try to steer the boat under expert instruction from the skipper.
Nature Experiences on the Little Belt
Whale watching with M/S Marianne is an absolutely fantastic nature experience for the whole family. The Little Belt is part of Nature park Lillebælt, Danmark’s largest nature park, so the nature experience by land, sea or air is something very special.
In addition to experiencing the lively porpoises, you will also learn a lot more about all the other animals that live in and around the belt during the tour. While sailing you have the opportunity to experience Jutland and Funen in a new way, that is from the coast - whale watching is therefore also a completely new way to see Fredericia’s beautiful nature!
