The season 2020 has ended

The summer holidays are over and Tarifa's streets have been empty since the beginning of September. We have therefore also closed down for this year.

Despite the short season we had many special sightings. We hope that the situation will become normal by the next season and can't wait to take you out to see the whales again from the 26th of March 2021 on.

See you soon in Tarifa, Katharina Heyer and the firmm team

Baby Wilson

Baby Wilson, the youngest member of our Orca family, was born in October 2014. This beautiful baby is an eye-catcher for anyone lucky enough to observe him.

It's a spectacle to see him in his natural environment. Curious, he watches his mother catching tuna and, despite his young age, tries to snatch pieces of his mother's prey.

He enchants our guests with his acrobatic jumps and his joy of life and makes the whole trip a very special pleasure.

Adopt Baby Wilson

We want you to be able to enjoy these wonderful animals in the future as well. With your symbolic sponsorship, we can quickly advance the elaborate evaluation of our data and use it to protect marine life. Can we count on you?

This is how we have experienced Baby Wilson since the beginning of our adoption program:

2015

Baby Wilson has quickly become the darling of our guests. A cheeky and trustful youngster, who was often at the boat, circled it and looked up curiously. He often played with the other three young ones or was learning how to eat tuna.

2016

Baby Wilson has grown over the winter and spring. But he is still the smallest of the four young orcas.

He had to learn how to eat a tuna fish (or at least a piece of it), because without hands it's not that easy! So he had a little less time for us, but still jumped a few times to our joy.

2017

Baby Wilson has grown a lot since last season. Now he is only the second smallest of the young Orcas. Estrella is smaller than him.

He continued to learn how to eat tuna. He therefore came less to the boat and seemed very busy. Only once, when there were nice waves, he showed us fantastic jumps!

2018

Baby Wilson is now one of the biggest of the young Orcas. He (or maybe she?) is still very curious and often brings his younger siblings to the boat. Near the fishermen, however, he is usually busy catching fish himself, or at least learning from the adults. He is therefore often to be found with his mother or also with Camorro.
