Join a cetacean-watching boat tour in the Pelagos Sanctuary with a marine biologist guide. See the marine animals in their natural habitat and learn about their species, habits, behavior, and more. Upon arrival, receive an introductory briefing about the Pelagos Sanctuary from your expert marine biologist guide. Learn more about its history, conservation programs, and the species that populate it, including fin whales, sperm whales, Cuvier’s beaked whales, bottlenose dolphins, and many more. Set sail on the open sea and reach some of the most favorable locations to spot various species of marine mammals in their natural habitat.

In full compliance with non-disturbance directives, approach the aquatic mammals by boat and see them frolicking in their natural habitat. Learn more about the curiosities of the species from your expert biologist guide, including their diet and mannerisms. After admiring the jumps or breaches, go in search of other marine species within the sanctuary.

It was great. Well organized. Nice people. The crew was very motivated and we saw around 40 to 50 dolphins in total. We also saw 2 whales about 8m from the ship. We were also on the road for at least 6 hours. There was a certificate for the children, which I thought was a great idea. All in all an unforgettable day. Many Thanks.

Living the sea, sailing and seeing cetaceans in their natural environment is a unique and exciting experience. The explanations of the guide give scientific, curious, interesting information on the seabed and on the fish species present as well as wandering around the magical world of cetaceans. EXPERIENCE NOT TO BE MISSED

It took a long time for a marine mammal to show itself. But then the dolphins came. The trip was longer than advertised because we only saw dolphins towards the end. For this, the captain turned some special rounds. That was really great.

It was wonderful, we could see the whale very closely, and the dolphins how they jumped very close to us, we would say that they were putting on a show just for us. Great day staff imppecable to redo when I return.

It is a beautiful excursion, the sighting of a whale and a group of dolphins made me move like a child ...
