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


We know Nina since May 06th, 2012. In 2014 she became mother for the first time.

Nina takes loving care of her offspring. She often seems to want to show us her little one, but maybe she just wants to show her baby the boat.

Adopt Nina

Thank you for your support for the marine mammals and the ocean as a habitat! With a symbolic sponsorship you help us to advance our research work and educational projects in Spain.

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


Nina is the proud mother of a curious baby and has often been near the boat since August.


We often see the proud mother of a baby from summer 2014. Nina is always accompanied by her cheeky young who often comes curiously to the boat, looks up and dives down. So we also see Nina often. She has become one of the most popular female Pilot Whales among our guests.


Nina has a baby again - the two often visit us at the boat. Her other little one is now a adolescent who frequently explores the world on his own and often swims along the boat.


Nina often visits us at the boat. Her young one no longer swims with the mother, but is still in the same family. He also belongs to the curious who often marvel at our boat from below.


Nina is still lovingly looking after her offspring, who still could be seen around her. The calf hardly moves away from the mother, but has recently become more curious and has often sought the proximity of the boat. Both swim in Oliver's family.
