Marine Wildlife can be observed yearlong. Sperm Whales are resident with 3 additional cetacean species, and marine biodiversity is abundant. From March to June it is the passing of many species of the migratory Baleen Whale giants. Exclusively between June and September it is possible to swim with any of 4 different species of Dolphins!
Our lookout high inland will assist the Skipper in finding wildlife and provide directions via VHF Radio. A knowledgeable Wildlife Guide is there to keep you informed, and ensure the best environmental and conservation standards on tour.
The duration of the trip is approximately 3 hours, after which the boat will need to be back at the Marina.
