Whale Watching Sightings

Welcome to our sighting logbook! Data are updated throughout the season, based on our Whale Watching and Swim with Dolphins trips.
Off-season sightings (Jan, Feb, Nov, Dec) are mainly ascribed to "staff-only" or otherwise sporadic boat trips, whose frequency reflects the lack of tourists rather than the presence/absence of the animals.
