Some of the most exciting wildlife encounters are to be had on whale watching tours. Getting close to the largest animals on the planet has got to be the experience of a lifetime.
Around the world, in all climates, you can find opportunities to go out on a boat and find passing whales. Their annual migration routes to and from their breeding grounds take Humpbacks, Minke and Sperm Whales near to the coasts of countries such as Sri Lanka, northern England, Australia and Argentina. In the Straits of Gibraltar the narrow sea corridor between Europe and Africa channels the passage of both whales and dolphins, making them easier to find. And all of these places also offer a wealth of seabirds to enhance the trip.
The Continental Shelf that skirts round Sri Lanka is a whale highway and whale watching tours from the port of Marissa are very popular because they have a high success rate. Imagine the sight of that leviathan of the oceans, the Blue Whale, breaking the surface of the sea and expelling a spout of water high into the sky. Can there be another wildlife encounter to beat it?
On whale watching tours to see Southern Right Whales as they navigate past Patagonia you will witness a species that very nearly went extinct. In the 1700s there were approximately 60,000 Southern Right Whales in the waters of the southern hemisphere. In the early part of the 20th century, following decades of whaling ships plying their trade, there were only around 300 of these whales left. Now, thanks to the whaling ban, numbers have risen but only into the thousands thus far. So, seeing a Southern Right Whale is a special experience.
The same can be said of many other whale species, which is why a responsibly organised whale watching tour is so high on many nature lovers’ most-wanted lists.
The tour operators on Blue Sky Wildlife are skilled at finding whales in their local waters and can offer that whale watching tour to remember forever.
