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

The foundation firmm

The foundation firmm was founded in 1998 by the Swiss Katharina Heyer. With our whale-watching trips in the Strait of Gibraltar we would like to enthuse our visitors about these fascinating animals and make them aware of the threats to the animals.

On our trips we collect data, which we then evaluate in our office and use for the protection of the marine mammals. In the menu above under Foundation and Research you can get an insight into our work.

In 2018 we celebrated our 20th anniversary. In the following video you can see what we have achieved during this time.
