From July 1st on we will sail out again to the whales and dolphins. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon and wish you already now a relaxing holiday. You will find information about the necessary hygiene and safety measures under observation tours.

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

Gorro

We know Gorro since June 7th, 2010. He is a big and robust Pilot Whale, about six meters long. We can identify him well by its cap-shaped fin.

Gorro is a dominant animal and the protector of his group. His sheer size alone allows him to be seen from a distance. He has brought us many unforgettable moments with his wonderful character.

Adopt Gorro

We are committed to a responsible treatment of the sea. And you can support us! With a symbolic sponsorship you support our research and educational work in Spain. Together we can achieve a lot!

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

2014

We see Gorro quite often. He is a proud male with a large family.

2015

The family of Gorro was often the first group we met. His straight dorsal fin is also visible from far away. He has a new tiny notch.

His family consisted mostly of 2 females and a young Pilot Whale.

2016

His family seems to have grown, for last year he was together with at most two others. This summer Gorro has mostly been with four other Pilot Whales.

2017

Gorro can be seen from afar. He is an impressive Pilot Whale and has no problem getting close to the boat.

This summer we have always seen Gorro together with his family of four to five Pilot Whales.

2018

Thanks to his cap-shaped fin, we can identify Gorro from a distance. We have noted him over 50 times, making him one of the most frequently encountered Pilot Whales.

From June this year on he attracted attention as a constant companion of the badly injured Lola. He seemed to protect her and assist her. If we sighted Gorro, then Lola was always to be found in closer vicinity.
