Free-diving with whales
One of the most important goals of this journey is to meet face-to-face with whales. We cannot explain why we are so much attracted by the giants, why we admire them and feel some sort of respect, peace and harmony. But we know for sure that meeting a whale is one of the most powerful experiences you can have in your life and everyone must try it.
There is no guarantee that whales will share a few moments of their silent and graceful lives with us, but we are going to do our best to make it happen: we’ll choose a right time and a right place, given their migration season and routes, and will have a highly experienced local whale watcher to help us searching whales.
We will also enjoy freediving deep water trainings, morning warm-ups, breathing and swimming exercises. Come join us!
What is included?
Searching whales and for possibility to swim with them in the ocean. We will go to the ocean on speed boats in groups of up to 5 people including the instructor. Groups are made intentionally small not to disturb the whales and be able to get as close to them as we can. Our local guide will decide on which days we will be searching whales and for how long
