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

Tarifa: venue for a special sailing challenge

by firmm Team


On August 28th 2020 the adventurers Lars Kyprian and Rüdiger Böhm start in Tarifa to an extraordinary challenge.

Could you imagine sailing from Gibraltar to Palermo in 30 days? 3750 kilometres on a 5x2 meter sports catamaran? 10-12 hours a day? Regardless of the weather? Without legs? This is definitely not a relaxing holiday; this is a real challenge - even for passionate sportsmen!

Lars Kyprian and Rüdiger Böhm from Switzerland are rising to this challenge. They want to show "what is possible if you are prepared to constantly push your own limits". Rüdiger, who lost both legs in an accident in 1997, follows this slogan. The enthusiastic extreme athlete fought his way back to life and never gave up his passion. On the contrary, under the motto "No legs - no limits!" he is constantly looking for new challenges.

We are pleased that the two have chosen Tarifa as the starting point for their new challenge. Be there live on the 28th of August and join us in saying goodbye to the team around Lars and Rüdiger. Accompany the adventurers via their live tracker and let yourself be carried away by the pictures and the enthusiasm on their following CINEMA-tour.

Especially in difficult times like these, such projects give us courage and show us how important it is not to give up, but to continue looking ahead. As Rüdiger says: "Challenge yourself. You will be surprised what you can achieve!" The man knows what he's talking about - he's setting the best example himself.
