Our whale sightings

Areas on our trips where we've spotted old and new friends

As part of our work with whales, we endeavour to keep a record of the number and type of species we see as well as the date and time of the encounter.

This not only allows us to monitor the whale population in the area, but also aids in our identification of individual whales that we've encountered before.

We photograph distinctive marks, shapes and scars on the whales to help ID and these photographs can be seen in the photograph gallery.

All our data is shared with Seawatch Foundation and Orca.
