More about Whale Safaris

St Lucia is a high energy surf launch into the INDIAN OCEAN – we do have oncoming waves rolling at us – and our boat has to ’’jump’’ through these waves hence, regret nou kids under the age of 12 on our boats.

This service is available beginning of June to the beginning of December. In the safe hands of experienced and renowned skipper and specialized Marine Mammal Guide Danie, you will be taken through the waves doing a direct beach surf launch to see the gigantic HUMPBACK WHALE.

You may be fortunate to witness a 40-ton acrobatic HUMPBACK WHALE breaching a mere 50 meters away from the boat !!!!

You may also see a variety of pelagic bird life, dolphin frolicking alongside the bow of the boat, sea turtles in season, shark, marlin, whale shark and other interesting marine mammals and cetacean – these sighting are a bonus.

We need about 3 hours of your time, of which the actual tour duration is approximately 2 hours ON the ocean, and then 30 minutes on either side to get you to-and-from the launch site on-board the Whale Train transport vehicle to the beach - This in itself is an adventure!

Don't miss out on this one!
