Dolphins’ Encounter & Whales Watching
Following the briefing on-board, the luxury boat will depart, heading to Tamarin Bay area where you can encounter dolphins in their natural habitat. The lower deck is perfect to see the dolphins from close; you will be amazed by seeing the pod of dolphins swimming next to the boat.
After the outing with the dolphins, you will be taken further out to the deep sea for the whale watching. The cruising journey to the whales is wonderful and is one of the highlights of this Shared Luxury cruise…
Whale watching is a different and more difficult outing as you will have to go further out to sea and the number of encounters you will have, depends a lot on weather and sea conditions. But, when you do see the whales, the sight is unbelievable.
