Whale Watching

From April to October you can join the firmm researchers. During our 2-hour boat trips you can watch various species of whales and dolphins. In our week-long observation courses you will find out more about the fascinating animals and the Strait of Gibraltar.

Großer Tümmler

Before boarding we provide you with valuable information about the whales and dolphins in the Strait of Gibraltar and also give you insight into firmm's work.

It is important for us to treat the animals with the demanded respect in order to minimize any disturbance. Therefore our skippers are specially trained to drive the boat in a careful manner. The organization firmm has also sent in "regulations for a respectful whale watching" to Spanish authorities in Madrid. Hopefully, one day all whales in Spanish waters can profit from that.

Whale Watch Trips

Our 2-hour whale watching tours operate several times per day (depending on the weather). Before and during the trips, our staff will be at your disposal to provide you with information and answer your questions.

Whale Watching Courses

You can book the firmm whale watching courses for one or two weeks. During our daily excursions and in interesting presentations, our marine biologists will provide you with valuable information about the endangered animals and the oceans in general.
