Guidance: English 

Scientific tours: One hour tours where our experienced guide teaches school children about marine biology, weather and some basic rules of sailing. We use a plough to catch some marine life from the bottom of the sea and they are explained and the children can look and feel them, i.e. starfish, crabs, sea cucumbers and brittle stars.

Whale Watching: Just like any other, study groups always recognize the value of seeing these biggest mammals on earth acting naturally in their natural and free habitats. The students can learn from the experienced guides on-board who ask the passengers to help them protect the environment, the ocean and these magnificent animals. Observing the actions and behaviors of the whales is an unforgettable experience for the young.
