Whale watching in Tarifa

By Rund Abdelfatah

WHERE the Mediterranean hugs the Atlantic Ocean, man meets the world’s biggest mammals – an encounter vital to their survival.

The geographical enclave is prime real estate and orca whales and fishermen alike rejoice at the large number of blue fin tuna, which promises a feast for both.

They also share the water with many others: pilot whales, sperm whales, fin whales and dolphins, just to name a few.

Best of all, these majestic creatures need not be admired only from afar.

Turmares Tarifa is dedicated to the art of whale watching and the mission of conservation.

Seeing a sperm whale wave hello with its tail is an experience like no other

It offers tours that unveil the intimate lives of the inhabitants of the sea.

Watch a mother orca with her young calves, or a massive fin whale – the second largest animal in the world – break the surface with a resounding blow.

And seeing a sperm whale wave hello with its giant tail is always fun.

The company boasts a 95 per cent sighting success rate and, in the rare case that whales are not sighted, a second trip is guaranteed free-of-charge.

The two-hour tours leave from Tarifa and run twice a day, all year.
