We can respond in various ways, but all have a common bond, it's an activity which shows the public how cetacean species live in their natural habitat, where they all have more sociable days and less sociable days, where each outing is an adventure, every day is different, and above all, we are enjoying nature in an environment which is different from ours but occupies the most part of the planet, the sea.
What is whale watching?
Whale watching is a commercial activity carried out in various places in the world, and has many objectives, from business to teaching, training, awareness and dissemination of the different species of cetaceans and the marine environment.
