Special Notes

These encounters, while never guaranteed, are frequent during winter, and many whales are also sighted while the vessel is travelling. Although the winter months can be a little cooler this is more than compensated by the clear water and chance of swimming with these amazing animals. No weight belts, scuba gear or flash photography is permitted. All guests must be fully able bodied, free from pre-existing medical conditions and a confident swimmer. Operating July- November only. Although every effort will be made, whale sightings cannot be guaranteed. Whilst this tour is open to all competent swimmers, we highly recommend a minimum age of 6 years to participate. Rules and directions from staff must be strictly adhered to and participants are not allowed to let go of the rope at any time during the swim experience.
