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

Sperm Whale Adoption

Sperm Whales can be recognized by their unique flukes. In order to correctly identify individual animals, we would have to approach them directly from behind, but this contradicts our philosophy and the rules for respectful whale-watching to disturb the animals as little as possible.

As an animal available for adoption we have therefore chosen a Sperm Whale who comes closer to the firmm boat by himself. Click on the picture for a more detailed description.



With Observador (Spanish for "observer") we always have the impression that he is watching us, not that we are watching him - hence the name.
