Did you know that a new born humpback whale gains 50 kg of weight in a single day?
Humpback Whales visit Tofo every winter from June to October. In increasing numbers, they migrate here and use our safe waters as a birthing ground and to raise their young. Thus, making Tofo an excellent place to witness, research and raise awareness of these graceful giants.
Experience these magnificent animals through one of our whale watching tours. Whatever package you choose (see below) you will have the opportunity to see them up close, learn about them, and possibly swim with them!
The tours are either lead by a visiting humpback whale researcher or by our own whale experts. Through our trips we aim to increase awareness of the environmental importance of these precious animals and marine conservation efforts more generally. This way we strive to ensure that Tofo continues to be a special place to see whales and other amazing but sadly endangered megafauna. We encourage our whale tour participants to get involved in the conservation work focused on these elegant giants and contribute to important ongoing research work.
We make sure that we have as little impact on these intelligent mammals as possible and that all our customers respect them and their marine habitat.
Liquids whale watching packages are available from July to end September.

Liquid Whale Watching Tour
Liquids Whale Watching tour is a half day experience that starts with a lesson about the magnificent whales of Tofo. Your guide will also fully brief you about our boat launching procedures, codes of conduct and how we interact with the whales.
During our time at the sea, we observe several groups of whales, listen to their singing through hydrophone, try to take ID pictures of their flukes and learn more about their behavior and conservation.
If our experienced guide sees the opportunity to swim with these intelligent mammals you may enter the water with them. There is however a strict code of conduct and we can never guarantee swimming with them, safety comes first. Seeing them from the boat is already a magical experience.
Your tour ends with debriefing and sharing photos and experiences.
85€ per person
