What to expect?

Whale & Sea Bird Watching in the Basque Country

Departing from the Port of Mutriku's harbour, we will navigate towards our observation area and into the sea. Along our journey, common dolphins will often swim along with us lifting up our spirits and hope. We also frequently encounter pilot whales along the way, greeting us with their heads outside the water. Blue tunas and sea birds such as gannets and shearwaters are some of the usual suspects that come to our encounter during our trips. But our targeted species are amongst the biggest marine mammals in the World: the sperm whale and the fin whale. Nothing beats the sensation of hearing their blow next to our boat, as water is expelled through their spiracles.

Our Tour Guides on board will share information on all species encountered along the way, including ways to recognize them in the open sea.
