Whale Watching Benefits

Our commitment to responsible whale watching stems from a deep respect for nature and a fascination for whales, dolphins and the other majestic marine creatures that contribute to making our destinations all the more exciting to visit. Whale watching affords a great many benefits both to whales and to humans, which is why we are happy to advocate it as the best way to see these fantastic creatures for yourself.

Experience the Whales’ Natural Habitat

It goes without saying that living in their natural habitat is significantly better for a whale’s livelihood than being in captivity. By seeing them in this setting you will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of the country itself, whether you are whale watching in Canada or Sweden, while also contributing to the tourism of coastal communities and their economies. From an economic point of view, the fact that whales live for so long means that they can be viewed around the world for many decades and thus enrich the lives of humans for much longer than they ever could in captivity.

The increased visibility for sea life is another benefit that improves their lives. The increased awareness of whale species, their natural environments and the threats they face helps inspire advocacy for whales, dolphins and the environment in general. Every boating trip also provides regular eyes on the water which reduces the risk that whales and dolphins and will be disturbed by less law-abiding seafarers. Larger vessels can even act as research vessels for ecological study, allowing them to add value to the scientific community.
