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

Whales are perfectly adapted to life in the water and you could almost mistake them for fish. Even though they're not related to them at all.

So what is the difference between a whale or a dolphin and a fish? Are the differences really that big? Find out in our little quiz.

Dolphin or shark?

So now you know the main differences between whales and fish. But could you also tell from the dorsal fin whether a dolphin or shark swims in the water? Give it a try!
