Cape Verde is a hotspot for whale activity during March and April, being one of just two breeding sites in the north Atlantic. And this half-day cruise takes you into the waters around the island to spot these majestic creatures in their natural habitat – all with the help of an on-board marine biologist.
After being picked up from your hotel, you'll sail out to the best spot to catch sight of whales on that day. Being one of two breeding sites in the north Atlantic, it's an ideal opportunity to spot these giants of the sea. March to April is peak season, so your chances are at their highest during these months.
Humpback whales come up for air for minutes at a time, before raising their enormous dorsal fins out of the water as they dive back down to the depths. If you're really lucky, you might see one breach – this is when they launch themselves into the air, before crashing back onto the surface with an almighty splash.
