What do I need to bring?

  • Binoculars are a good ally for better whale watching.
  • Do you get seasick easily? You can buy anti-seasickness products at the pharmacy.

Do I choose a specific date?

  • Other cetacean species are more abundant in May and June.

What if I carry a camera?


  • The snapshots are often blurred by the movement of the boat and the cetaceans.
