Aboard the ship “Croix du Sud V”, we offer you a 4h trip at sunset to discover cetaceans off the coast at a really particular moment of the day.
Whale watching from Sanary provides excellent opportunities to encounter a few of the most emblematic sea giants. Just to name some of them, we have sperm whales, striped dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, risso’s dolphins, pilot whales and fin whales, the second largest animal on earth…
The team of scientists, naturalists guides and photographers from Découverte du Vivant delivers a conference on board, presenting the mediterranean cetacean species, their biology and conservation measures.
A feedback of the trip will be sent to every participant, including pictures.
La Croix du Sud V is an eco-responsible whale watching operator, involved in the long term preservation of the cetacean populations of the Mediterranean sea. We were delivered the “High Quality Whale Watching” label by the Pelagos sanctuary for marine mammal conservation in 2012. It ensures a respectful approach of the animals, to disturb them as little as possible.
