Whale Watching Tour in the Strait of Gibraltar from Tarifa

Duration of the Whale Watching tour – 2 hours.

Orcas sightings tours from Tarifa

Tour time approximately 2 hours.

To see the ORCAS from Tarifa, we will sail to Tanger area. That’s where Moroccan and Spanish fishermen come to fish tuna.

Orcas follow the migratory route of tuna. Normally orcas come to the Strait from mid-July till the end of August, dates that, of course, are not accurate.

AN AWESOME SHOW OF NATURE!

In this excursion we will see the capture of tuna in a traditional way by the Moroccans fishermen. They take out one by one fish that weigh 300 kilos. We can see the orcas hunting the same tuna, and many times stealing it from the fishermen.

DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT WHALE WATCHING EXCURSION

The Strait of Gibraltar is one of the best places in the world for orcas sightings.

They come here to hunt the tuna. The tuna hunting area has a depth about 200 meters. This is where we often see them feeding on the surface, or swimming among the small boats of the Moroccan fishermen.

Only the capture of tuna by Moroccan fishermen is a sight worth seeing. And also we can see the killer whales stealing tuna from the Moroccans fishermen, it will be an experience never forgotten.

However, nature does not have exact laws. So, if in the trip we will not see orcas, we will go to the other site of the Strait, looking for the dolphins and pilot whales. We always guarantee sighting of at least one species of cetaceans.

FAQ about whalewatching tours

The places to go in this tours are in the different parts of the Strait of Gibraltar. Pilot whales have their preferred area, dolphins swim between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and orcas are usually found in a specific place, near Tanger.

To see the killer whales we have to sail much farther, so the price of the trip is a bit higher.

It is better to wear comfortable clothing and some warm clothing, since in the Strait of Gibraltar it is usually a bit cooler than in Tarifa.

Nothing else is needed, just the desire to enjoy the company of these awesome animals in their natural habitat.

Practically in 100% of the excursions that we made we sighted any animals.

However, nature is unpredictable, so, if we do not see any species of cetaceans, we guarantee another trip without cost.

The Strait of Gibraltar is one of the best sites for sighting cetaceans, basically because of the amount of food that animals have.

To see dolphins and pilot whales, any month is good, since they are residents of the Strait of Gibraltar.

To see orcas the best months are July and August, although it is always good to be informed by phone about their presence in the Strait.

Sperm whales and fin whales can be seen throughout the year, spring and early summer being the most likely months.
