Whale watching

Seeing a whale blow just a few metres away is one of the most exciting experiences that Santurtzi has to offer.

Whale watching at sea is an unforgettable experience. This programme brings it within your grasp. Feel the thrill of dolphins swimming alongside less than 1 m from the boat, enjoy watching a family of long-finned pilot whales and the chance to sail up to a great whale and hear it blow.

We organise exciting, full-day boat trips accompanied by an expert on board.
